SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK

This photo at a fire in Albion was taken, I believe, by Terrie Beckley. (I apologize if I'm wrong.) Phil isn't wearing gear because the fire broke out only a block from the Noble County Courthouse, where he works, so he headed straight for the scene. That's me on the left, stretching a line toward the rear to help protect the large house to the left; Phil is getting another line ready while the rest of the crew gears up. A short time after this photo was taken, the house started shooting at us. (Seriously -- ammunition cooking off.)

Hm ... Doctor Who

Writer's Block: She's a brainiac on the floor

Would you rather be super-rich or super-smart if you would only be average in the other category?

If you were super-rich, you could just pay people to stand around and tell you that you're above average in every other category ...

but I'd rather be super-smart.  I already am pretty much average in every other category, so it could only help.
