Here's a hero for you:
Most Vietnamese cower when a cop squeezes them for a bribe. Le Hien Duc, a gray-haired 75-year-old grandmother, fights back.
Four-foot-nine and weighing just 88 pounds, she'll take on anyone, from lowly bureaucrats to high-level officials. She e-mails, phones, tracks them down at their offices, confronts them at their homes.
``Corruption is definitely an evil, and it is ruining my beloved country,'' said Duc, a former elementary school teacher who works from dawn until dusk battling graft.
Duc says she is following the example of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam's Communist revolutionary hero. As a young woman, she joined Ho Chi Minh's anti-colonial revolution and spent years in the jungle working with codes for the army. Link to story at Guardian.co.uk.
