$2.5 Million Lawsuit The facts are basically these: Guy’s on the job for 10 years, first day on a temporary assignment,  in the locker room looking for a locker.

Ethics: Reg Wants to Know

Entry Img

IAFF as ATM Reg Verner, of IAFF Local 3591, pegged me yesterday as a faker because I didn’t call an ethics foul while I worked at the IAFF. Actually, he’s not the only one to do it, there have been others, including guys from my own local. As they have no substantive response to all […]

Smile For the Camera Does our collective heart go out to soon-to-be former Navy War College professor John Schindler whose penis was apparently tweeted, so to speak? Perhaps not.

EMS Study: Shut the F–k Up.

Entry Img

When “Quiet Please” Just Isn’t Working. We’ve all been there before: that patient who is making the proper provision of care all but impossible because of their yammering on. Loud, obstructive and verbose, they refuse to cooperate. Apparently faced with just such a patient, UK West Midlands Paramedic Richard Playford employed the crucially important but […]

Still, whatever happened to a […]

Phrase of the Week

Does Anybody Edit These Letters? Mergers, mergers. Like a lot of folks I belong to a gym, in my case, The Sports Club/LA (SCLA) because it has an indoor pool.

It’s OK.
I agree Eric. The child who shot the instructor is the victim. The parents are responsible for this tragedy as equally as the instructor himself and the management of the shooting range. Another example of a total lack of common sense. And as usual, captured on video for all the world to see.

It’s OK.
I'm not fully in agreement with you on this, Eric. Yes, one wonders what those parents were thinking, allowing a child to handle that kind of weaponry. And yes, they owe the victim's family a huge apology (which they may have made privately). But from the other side, the victim's family has the wisdom and…

Labor: Leave Ray Rice Alone
What Ray and his wife need is alcoholol rehabilitation. Would any of this have happened if they were both not totally drunk on their assess?
