Everything's Gonna Be All Right

Ten noisy firetrucks full of firemen arrived en masse in Midtown early this morning. They were responding to an emergency of some sort.

One of the cool things about being a fireman that nobody talks about is that you get to put wooden door stoppers in your helmet and you can always be prepared just in case you want to ever hold the door open for someone. You also get to rip down doors and walls with axes and crazy looking six foot long poles with gnarly metal things at the ends.

Totally unrelated: Do you think Felicia Barton stands a chance of winning Season 8 of American Idol? Here she is performing "No One" by Alicia Keys. It's way too early to tell, but you never know. You read it here first just in case she happens to do really well. I kind of like the girl in the bikini, Katrina Darrell.

They'd love her. Season 8 is going to go to the homeless girl from last night.

Nice salute to Robert Indiana there with the LOVE sculpture in the background.
