The death of a Boston fire lieutenant while returning from a “routine medical call” last week was terrible. I’ve been thinking about that in the context of “Wear and Tear” parts I and II and will have some thoughts on this later this week or next.
Out of respect for the life of this fine man, I’m going defer those comments for a while.
Too bad that his union and others are not doing the same. The political jockeying has already started as both the city and the union try to use his loss to their own advantage. Which I find rather disgusting myself. Plenty of time for recriminations, accusations, and political posturing after he has been laid to rest.
Rest in Peace, Lieutenant Kelly.
