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.

Or maybe you could simply point out that it should be "than" instead of "then" instead of continuing the trend of sarcastic "bashing".

Of course the mispelled (homophone) in the image for number 5, doesn't help folks respect the level of education.

Should firefighters shop while on duty?
Absolutely - good point. Of course if you live a bit further north where snow , Ice and bitterly cold weather is around for 7 months it is a bit to chilly to be hanging outside the rig hoping for people to come talk to you. We park our rigs away from the direct line…

Michael, Congratulations again on that fine piece, your retirement, and the better place you are in now. I read that piece when you first put it on the blog and it stuck in my head. I didn't realize it myself, but I was entering a dark place too that went on for a few more…
