I don't see what Gov. Schwarzenegger being an immigrant has to do with this event... but I suppose it looks better in print than "California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose hair is a very odd shade of red these days..."

Scott P,

In my haste to get this posted, I borrowed copy from the L.A. Press Club's release, including the statement regarding our Governor. :)

Clearly needless words for our purpose, for what was truly a wonderful event and honor to our Brother Jim's memory.

Thanks for keeping us on our toes, and for allowing me a chance to explain.

Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

Brian Humphrey
Public Service Officer
Los Angeles Fire Department
