Update

I haven't posted in almost two weeks. Why? There is absolutely nothing to talk about.

J is still at court services, and still hating it. He's recently been trained and authorized to fly armed, in order to do prisoner transports. Which means beaucoup overtime! I've gotten absolutely spoiled rotten by having him home evenings, weekends AND holidays. He anticipates going back out on the road shortly before the baby gets here, but is also going to take paternity leave for several weeks. So I will probably have a complete breakdown when we both go back to work and I am back to being a single-married wife. But them's the breaks, eh?

I haven't forgotten anybody, or forgotten about the blog. I just haven't had anything interesting to share with you from the cop world.

I did however, stumble across this story today about the controversy surrounding the proposed 9/11 memorial. I wasn't aware that there was a controversy, but I can definitely see both sides of the debate. The designer originally proposed a completely random scattering of all the victims' names on the memorial, and not having any other details (building/plane/first responder, age, etc) On the one hand I do feel like they should be sorted out, and I'm a little biased about first responders, since they had a choice about being there. But on the other hand I would hate for that to demean the senseless deaths of anybody else on 9/11. I don't really know where I stand on this one. Thoughts?

I say put everyone's name on there and leave it at that.

I agree with Brent, that seems to be the solution that would be the best of all of the options.

People die in all lines of employment, EVERY DAY!
Let's not lose sight of that either.
That's what Worker's Memorial Day is about.
Let's never forget persons that die in attacks such as Pearl Harbor or 911.
