And Now a Word From The Sponsor
Welcome to my site and thank you for reading. After many times thinking, if only I had a blog, well-- here we are. This blog will feature writings on a variety of topics from roadside food, to leadership in the fire service; politics; culture- gay, straight, and indifferent, my experiences in Ohio, New York and beyond; and much much more. It's my hope that you will find it interesting and that it stirs at least some thought and discussion. I am certain you wont always agree, but that is what its all about right? Oh and one more thing: The views expressed on this site are entirely my own. They do not reflect in anyway the views or positions of my employer.

The Gift of a Different View
For those in the public safety communications profession (or any part of public safety) I have a suggestion: GET OUT OF YOUR NORMAL ENVIRONMENT! Visit some other agencies, talk with fellow diapatchers, and find out how things are on the other side of the fence. You may not learn the secret of the holy grail- you may not learn much of anything. But you will learn something! I promise. Just be aware, open to the experience, willing to ask questions, and don't be afraid to find out thing that might shatter some assumptions that you currently have. Maybe your place is nowhere near as good as your thought. Or maybe its way better. Or maybe the truth is we are all one family- some good, some bad- but always able to grow and learn and do better-- together.
