    I recall watching the live news reports from the Bevely Hills Super Club Fire, as I was living in Ohio at the time. Another one for "the books".

    I'm not an FDNY Dispatcher, but I slept at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    Hows this sound???

    Calling Batallion One-Nine, bunch of calls, three, two, the rescue and the squad coming in, K...."

    "Throgs Neck" I thought us Brits had cornered the market on weird and unusual place names. Obviously not--is it a corruption of Frogs Neck?

    At least it is short-have a butchers at where I am living. "Wh"is pronounced as "Ph" in Phone

    Ok, gang, more stuff for the Buffs . Two of the companies at the Triangle Shirtwaist fire had motorized apparatus rather than horse drawn rigs.

    What companies were they?
