You know that Npr can not make things up , because they can be sued.
You know the journalist who wrote the story had to go and interview the restaurant , and the people involved in ths story.
So all the people involved in this story are lying ( the journalist,Julio Diaz,the robber,the waiters,the manager,the dishwashers,etc,etc,etc), that's what you are saying now.
Wait, where does it say anywhere that anyone was interviewed about this story or anything like that? As far as I can tell this is a recording of this guy's story, he can say whatever he wants. The whole premise of this "StoryCorps" thing is for people to submit their own stories, not for NPR to vett what they submit.
Here's some info on how this story came to be on NPR:
"Unlike traditional oral history interviews, a StoryCorps interview is done by two people who know each other. We believe that being interviewed by a friend or family member is a powerful experience. It not only captures your memories and stories, but the dynamics of your relationship.
StoryCorps also provides the equipment, space and staff for a broadcast-quality recording. A StoryCorps facilitator guides you through the interview process and operates the recording equipment. At the end of the session, you receive a CD of the recording to pass along to family and friends. With your permission, another copy will be archived at the American Folklife Center in the Library of Congress, accessible to future generations.
Selected interviews are edited and produced for broadcast on our website, NPR, and other media outlets."
OK, so his friend interviewed him, StoryCorps took the tape, gave it to NPR, NPR edited it and put it on the air. Nothing in there about researching if it was true. I doubt they'd get sued even if it was false, its a personal account, a human interest story, not hard news.
Do you also believe all the stories in Penthouse Forum?
Then again, maybe a.) I missed the part about researching the veracity of the story, b.) I'm just a d!ck, or c.) some combination of a. and b.

Who knows,if it really happened its a pretty impressive story.
Definitely. All I'm saying is its a heckuva lot more likely the guy ends up with a knife buried in his stomach for trying something like that than having a nice dinner and getting his wallet back! I think its more likely he did something equally heroic under more pedestrian circumstances (like he gave a homeless beggar his jacket and took him out for dinner), and sexed it up to get it on NPR. You're right though, it could be 100% true, just sounds strange to me.

The Bad Guy:
If his friends find out about all this gooey lovey dovey liberal bull***** he'll have to pack his bags and head for Frisco, his homeys will run him out of town.
If Sean Penn & Sarandon can find him they can dream up a Liberal Wizard Of Oz movie about his life, Penn will go on the Today Show and cry.

"oh look sweetheart, it's a depressed mental meth junkie, quick give him your underwear"
"oh darling i'm becoming aroused"
Well the bear will be gentle
And the wolves will be tame
And the lion shall lay down by the lamb
And the beasts from the wild
Shall be led by a child
And I'll be changed, changed from this creature that I am
