shame on you jerry.SOME HEROES!!! oh there just men doing a job. no hero there. they have always had behavior problems. Let's not forget the porn stars who got nude and posed of pics in a IFD fire house. Little was done to those who had a part in that.
to lump all firefighters in the same short sided comment that you made is typical (not to mention discriminatory). not all firefighters are like the ones portrayed in the story. we are honorable citizens like you. we have families who kiss us good-bye each day and wonder if in fact it truly is good-bye forever. we have mortgages and car notes. we have stress and joy. we have those who go to church and those who drink too much at bars. we bleed when cut and we sometimes have too much bravado. but never do we say...that is the home of a black or white family so we won't respond. never do we say that is a person with an alternative lifestyle so we won't put the fire out. no instead we compete with each other to be the first to get to the fire.
Sen. Larry Craig is not indicative of all senators. the educator that molests in not the norm for all teachers. your co-worker wherever you work may have secrets and prejudices that you may or may not be unaware of, but that is not a representation of you or your company--so why do you take cheap shots at firefighters?
I suppose you may just be upset so we will forgive you because I KNOW that the 2 kids that were rescued from a house fire last week are certainly glad that there is at least ONE HERO on the fire dept. and ONE HERO on the police dept.
