A Nickel(back)’s Worth of Firefighting

A light post for your Friday. Enjoy, or pick it apart.

Well done. You make some awesome points. In regards to the "numbers".....(and kind of backing up your thought of changing tactics), we have often wondered why there is so much emphasis on RIT and the RIT/Industrial complex.

“Over safetyification”... Dave, that is the best description of what those who want to prevent us from doing the job want to do to the job.
