    This is an excellent photo; it looks like a snapshot out of a movie. It is a fine example of true dedication to duty.

    Sorry for posting misinformation. Although, I guess I'm unsure why I should blindly accept your assertion over the friend who sent me the pic. Oh well, guess that's the internet for you.

    My bubble is not burst. It remains a great photograph. Just say'n ..........

    Not even sure why you had to post that comment the way you did.

    These were taken during Sandy so now you can feel better.
