You, Sir, Are My Hero Vol. 5

PoP-Hero

Thanks to a reader for sending:

“After the past few months on a serious deadline at work that finished up yesterday, I decided to venture out to my usual lunch spot in Farragut Square and was welcomed back by the sounds of some John Coltrane and Keith Jarrett playing on a series of small speakers and an iPod set atop the electrical closet. It made a gorgeous day even more so, and I’d like to express some appreciation to this gentleman for taking the time to make the many park lunch-goers’ time away from the office just that much better. You sir, are my hero.”
