Thumbs up to all of the law-enforcement officers who put their lives on the line every day they're on duty for a paycheck that isn't nearly enough to justify the risk. They take guff from the people who dispute the ticket they got for speeding or whose rowdy children aren't "real criminals. " But when there's trouble and they don't arrive quickly, or worse, when they arrest someone whose parents have been making excuses for him or her for years, they are criticized. Thanks, officers, for all that you do. Thumbs up to all of the firefighters and the emergency medical services personnel who interrupt their sleep, their dinners and other family occasions to deal with the grisly aftermath of a car wreck, an assault or a fire.
