Biting the hand that saves

In this morning’s Boston Herald, there’s a story about EMTs in and around Boston. It seems that saving lives and helping people is its own reward for them.

It better be, because they sure as hell don’t get much gratitude.

I know we’re getting to be a more violent and crass culture, but do we really need to start roughing up trained lifesavers?

I worry that, sooner or later, certain areas will simply be declared as “too dangerous” and EMTs will start refusing to respond to calls from there.

And I don’t think I could bring myself to blame them.
