This is even more interesting than I thought.

I followed this link that Harvey left in the comments to my last post for the story about Donald Herbert, the recovering firefighter, and noticed that the spokesman for the family was someone that I know. Simon Manka, the uncle of the fireman, was one of the Scoutmasters for my old Boy Scout Troop, and is a very good friend of my father.

Pretty weird, eh? And I didn't even know until I read about it in a British news report.

Earlier today, my father spoke with his friend and got a good first hand account of what happened, and everything was pretty much the way it was reported in the news. He was sitting there in an almost totally unresponsive state, when he just turned to one of the staff at the Father Baker Convelcence Home and asked to speak to his wife.

I'm just glad that my cynicism was unfounded, and that this story is getting the press that it deserved.

For those of you so inclined, please pray that Mr. Herbert continues to improve.

We're getting a little news down here about it. I suspect that talk radio and blogs have forced the issue with the legacy media. They get dragged in to covering things they'd rather leave alone, sometimes.
