Mr. Borenstein appears to be the leader of the Contra Costa Times Band... he sure doesn't mind tooting his own horn! There obviously aren't enough pages in the times to hold his ego. How about journalism that is unbiased, researched, and presented from both points of view. Has Mr. Borenstein failed to see that both Policemen and Firemen go to work everyday at a job that exposes them to harm, both physical and mental, than those of us who work 9-5ers? Has Mr. Borenstein seen the statistics for Cancer and Heart problems that are "Spiked" (his term) for our public safety officers? Perhaps they get such a good retirement pay because they don't typically live as long after they retire as you or I, because they are inhaling toxic smoke and who knows what else. Thanks for smearing the reputation of our heros Mr. Borenstein, perhaps you could do the job for cheaper yourself? I'd like to see a piece done by Borenstein where he spends a week in a Firemans and Policemans Shoes.
