I forgot to say cheese

Check this picture out:

Now you'd think, with my newspaper's publisher taking the photo and me being one of his reporters, he'd get me in the picture -- kind of a free publicity thing. But nooooo ....

See the guy in the doorway? I'm crawling on the floor right in front of him, dragging the nozzle into the house to look for fire extension. I could have hung back for just a second, given a little wave, maybe pointed heroically. Nah. I suck at self promotion. :-)

Later I found out that where in the basement the fire was had been reported wrongly, and we'd crawled right over the fire area -- so I guess we had more important things to be concerned about!

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.
