OMG..Charles Ramsey--A true American Class Act? Or Idiot? The idiot comment comes from the fact he has been offered news interviews, book deals, tabloid deals all for money which he has refused. There is no doubt he did a great thing a regular American citizen helping out where help was needed. Critics are calling him a idiot for not taking money for his good deed, they say the guy has been given the chance to "better his life" and he refuses. My thoughts...maybe he is happy with the life he has and for that the guy gets nothing but my respect!
