    Just saw this... awful news. We tend to throw the word "heroes" around quite a bit in association with our hobby, but this is what it really looks like. Never in my life have I interacted with a firefighter that wasn't kind and friendly--and to top it off, they're doing a difficult and dangerous job. Truly a honorable profession.

    My little girl loves fire trucks right now, so we took her down to the station around the corner for a visit, and they were just great to her.

    Damn, I've been watching movies today and haven't seen it on the news yet. That's sad news.
