This is the kind of greatness firefighters do:
Notice the weeping gratitude on that woman’s face? That’s a look few other professions can bring.
Yet firefighters are under attack for being lazy, overpaid, union workers and expected to give up salary and benefits after politicians made a ginormous mess gambling on Wall Street with the pension funds of real workers.
Politicians (and any others) who think paying firefighters is not a good use of taxpayers’ money can suck my metaphorical dick.
