I don't have the answer to your question...but knowing what YOU do for a living...I'd say that I respect you WAAAAY more than I respect them. You save lives every day. What could they do??? Who knows and who cares? Can't buy them any more happiness than you've already got w/your family who loves you dearly and friends who are better just for knowing you(myself included)! just my 2 cents...and my thanks for keeping your city as safe as the fire fighters in mine keep ours.eng45ine said:The simple question is this...what could these people possibly do for a living that allows them to afford this boat? It just isn't fair!!!
