    *sigh* They're coming fast and furious yet again.



    My deepest condolences to the Robeson family and the Scranton Fire Department for their sad loss. My thoughts are with the injured, as well.

    Sleep with angels, James.

    I don't normally reply to these threadds, but Scranton is part of the area that I cover in my job. I have worked a bunch of fires there. What a great bunch of guys. They are very tight. This is going to be devestating for them.

    Rest Easy Brother.
    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    You're welcome. I tried to reply to your message, but I got the "user isn't accepting PMs" thing.
