He-Man Gives Kids Hope

10:00 AM -- The New York Times reports on a darling widdle moppet, nine years old, who's won a chance to go shoot a bear in Vermont:

    The dream hunt - all expenses paid, including taxidermy - was the brainchild [loosely defined] of Kevin Hoyt, a 35-year-old hunting instructor who quit a job as a structural steel draftsman a few years ago and decided to dedicate himself to getting children across the country interested in hunting...
Hold onto the dream, Kev!

    "My youngest child was with me when he was 2 months old and I shot a deer with a muzzle loader," he said. "He was in a backpack. I was stuck home baby-sitting and I felt like hunting."

    With his wife, Heather, supporting the family by working from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. at a veterans' home and a Wal-Mart, Mr. Hoyt devotes himself to his mission...
What a guy!
