4. My local comic shop deals with the economic downturn: "We open earlier now, and close later, because every hour counts." (Ironic. I specifically stopped patronizing the store because the guys running it never seemed to open on time.) Via.

  1. John,

    I appreciate your righteous concern about the allegations regarding a Fire Department employee.

    That much said, I'm not sure based upon what has been made public (but will likely be known in the future), that anyone can yet say:

    "he'd done it enough times"

    Maintaining the trust and respect of those we serve is a top priority.

    If anyone wishes to tender a compliment or complaint regarding the Los Angeles Fire Department, we encourage direct contact with the LAFD Professional Standards Division:


    Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

    Brian Humphrey
    Public Service Officer
    Los Angeles Fire Department
