    Holy crap Ed! That's a lot of freakin posts! Maybe you have too much free time on your hands, or maybe you just like to talk a lot. Who knows? Anyhow, congrats.

    With time and a little typing, you too can have as many posts as me...wait that's not that many. I'm ashamed...

    Seriously though, it's not the amount of posts, it's the quality and thought behind them. You can have 1000 posts and be a 'tool' but have 500 and be respected.

    Or, consequently, you can have 7000 (or 3000 like Art or Harve) like Ed and take the time to share years of experience...along with the occasional joke!

    Either that or some people have WAYYY to much time on thier hands!!

    Thank you all!

    I've been just a wee bit busy with coverage of a Pope that died recently.....and a colleague who has been diagnosed with lung cancer. Some of you know that while I'm not hiking the fire roads, I work for ABC News. Although I knew Peter was under the weather...the extent of his illness was unknown until we received his e-mail. I ask you keep him in your thoughts and prayers. This will be a tough time in the New York studios....a very tough time.

    I think the first one to ten thousand should have a feature article done about them on Firehouse.com!

    Just my opinion...

    Ed,

    I am sorry, for some reason I missed your post...my reply seemed rather callous following what you said. My thoughts and prayers are also with you and your co-workers at ABC.

    Hey...how about the first one to 10,000 and the second one to 5000...... Me and Ed together........

    Ed.....I too failed to pass on my prayers to Peter Jennings. Please....if you can find a way to get a message to him, tell him that this band of brothers and sisters is behind him and wish him well. Our collective thoughts and prayers are with him, his immediate family and his ABC family as well....

    I just looked back. A lot of crusties have replied here to congratulate ED. WE have all been around the block a while and the posts for these veterans total 32,467 (up to the time this one posts). That is a lot of knowledge, wisdom and good times...

    Hats off to all you brotehrs and sisters!
