I really Admire the people that work for 911 although it is easy for people to
criticize them, it is a tough Job I have met these epople personally, and you
can really feel the stress level they are at.

These are underpaid social councellors that react quicker than a sniper under
stress....

My hats to these people.

[My apologies for spelling mistakes...carpal tunnel taking its toll.]
