Great story. Wont get that much airplay because there's no controversy to it but still very heartwarming to read.

Lol. It doesn't even get much SCF airplay. It gets immediately pushed down the P&R forum by Obama, Jesus and Trayvon Martin.

That's a good way to win over voters. ;) Its nice to know people still think of others before themselves when someone's life is on the line. They refer to him as a hands on mayor, even helping to...

after doing some reading up on this guy, i would absolutely vote for him. and not because of the fire heroics.

Agreed. I had heard before that he was really doing some good things for Newark, but I didn't know about a lot of the specifics. He seems like a really good guy.
