“With great power comes great responsibility,” says our friendly neighborhood Spiderman, a.k.a. Peter Parker, a.k.a. actor TOBEY MAGUIRE. Like all who share his birthday, Tobey is both brave and friendly. Whether you agree with EMMA GOLDMAN’s methods or not, there’s no arguing that she had guts, enduring imprisonment and deportation as she spread her views. And disgraced evangelical leader TED HAGGARD had the courage to return to the public spotlight to say he deserved what he got. Then again, he got some serious cash for his appearances and an HBO documentary about his time in exile. There’s nothing like a little dough to boost your courage, especially if you were born today. You think Spiderman would reject a corporate endorsement? Just look for the label on his tights next time.
