More Public Servants to Rally Around. In what appears to be a extremely trying time, the members of the NSW Fire Brigade have been working insane hours, under the most intense conditions....and with a largely volunteer force. Although, I heard NSW Premier Bob Carr this morning on the news state that he intends to have the (accused) arson culprits visit burn wards and help with clean-up with the intent to "traumatize" theses kids. Strong stuff but I gather that's the kinda guy he is. Of course, if you feel the urge, you can give until it hurts. (registration required). Makes me want to emmigrate again.

God bless firefighters. I mean that seriously. Hopefully, there's a spot in heaven just for them, where the beer is ever plentiful, the refrigerator full of meat products, and there are no blazes like these.

Swerdloff, your comments were so pertinent, I think they're worth repetition.

Help is on the way from your friends in Oregon:Two "Elvis" Erickson Air-Cranes stranded in the US by a snowstorm are likely be in Australia by Monday night to join the battle against raging bushfires in NSW.I've seen them in action, they are awsome.
