Yesterday this, http://www.aol.com/video/confessions-of-an-emt/517572073/ ran on America Online's Homepage. Nearly half a million people viewed it, and lots of those people linked here, and some of those took the time to leave comments on some of the posts. I'm still amazed that half a million people saw the piece, I can't really comprehend that many people, it just seems so vast.

Thanks to Adam Kaufman for taking the trip from NYC just days after Hurricane Sandy decimated the area, and capturing what we do so well, and thanks too to everybody who visits here, I read all the comments and appreciate each and every one.

The story in the video is true, I wrote about it in a blog post when I was feeling particularly philosophical.

    A half-million viewers, huh? That's what, a quarter of your daily readership here? ;-)
    Terrible thing in Connecticut today. Prayers to all involved, including the responders, since no one ever thinks of them (well, us). They're affected too, especially since it's a volunteer FD.
    Hug your loved ones a little tighter tonight, and give thanks for them.

Respect in Ferguson and everywhere else
The events in Ferguson ( in my view as a black american) brings tears to my eyes because it outlines the basic problem in america when it comes to race relations. If the officer had been black and the circumstances the same, this would not be a story BUT when a group of blacks kidnap,…

"Thanks Mike. I just walked my kids to the school bus. We stood in the cold for 10 minutes. Then I had to drive to the school because my son forgot his shoes. When he called and said, "Dad can you bring my shoes to school?" I had to ask which pair from the pile…
