Ian O'Doherty: What wonderful people
Let's face it, we all wish that we were a bit braver than we actually are.
And in an age where, as I wrote yesterday, people are being banned from bumping into each in bumper cars because of health and safety laws, we crave a bit of danger, now more than ever before.
That's why we have such admiration for daredevils, explorers and the kind of people who engage in life-threatening stunts. Like being a human cannonball, for example.
