1. K & R!
This is one of those professions that I think you either have what it takes or you don't.

And not many do.

Many thanks to our firefighters everywhere.

8. No, Bertman .. you should be proud.
They work for you. They are the living legacy of "Republicans" Teddy Roosevelt and Gifford Pinchot. Neither were really Republicans, but that is an old story.
