I was asked to blog on the local addition of Patch. The AOL string of online community newspapers. The indictment of the arsonist who burned down my favorite pizza joint prompted me to post an old fireman story.

Oops. It won't be officially published until noon central.

I'll repost then.

Salty, wow... A few moments either way, the result could have been much different. I have nothing but respect for those who serve, putting life and limb on the line for those of us, that a lot of times take for granted what Emergency Responders do, or like yourself, have done in the past to keep us regular folk safe. I'm glad it went well that day, and you got to live to tell the tale. A lot, to many, have not been so lucky. I live in a different country, but thanks for your sacrifice, and a thank you to any still making that sacrifice.
