GOLLY, I am so GLAD that WAFF got all that off the chest!! Gosh, Ab, a
person could develop an ulcer feeling that snitty and not blowing it off
on your site.

All seriousness aside, I suspect the reason that dozens of people did
not pigpile all over the post about the benefits for a lost contractor
is that many of us have been dealing with that issue for ages and ages
and ages. What happens when contract tanker pilots die? Who provides
those benefits? It’s an old issue, an ugly issue, and not one that will
go away anytime soon. This is not about how agency firefighters feel
about contract firefighters, and contract firefighters are nothing new.
Seems to me like WAFF oughta get a better grip on the issue before going
off and spitting on everyone in the assumption that no one cared.
