Last week Blauser came home to be feted for his work: He was at L.D. Bell last Tuesday and in L.A. Saturday night, where CNN -- with the assistance of a Love Boat panel of judges that included Elton John, Whoopi Goldberg, Ted Turner, Shakira and Kirk Cameron, not to mention millions of online voters -- named him one of the year's Heroes. CNN will televise its tribute Thanksgiving night, as Blauser shares a stage with the likes of Nicole Kidman, Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brosnan, Kate Hudson, The Rock and Neil Patrick Harris. A video featuring Blauser in action follows.
