There's a good plan. If you don't like something I've said put me on ignore and don't bother responding to my posts.

How about showing you have a good side and apologize for that moronic "natural selection"? I was "essential personnel" for 29 of my 30 years in LE. I guess I'm lucky I didn't meet my demise coming in during these bad weather events.

Have you all seen what NJ and NY are dealing with - absolutely hellish. We are *very* lucky around here.

Fair enough. My apologies for that comment. I respect your and others' public service and appreciate the information you provide on here. I'm glad you made it through the night okay.

Hope all made it thru the night OK. Couple of trees down (W. Ox & WM) on the roads, lots of smaller limbs/debris around. What a mess.

I am assuming that apology is also extended to my family and friends who voluntarily man their stations today. If so, I appreciate the apology, as would they.

I don't cater to phony umbrage.

Excuse me?

What is the difference between Bigfoot424 taking exception to your insulting remark and my pointing out the same? Or do you only apologize to "certain" kind of people?

If you acknowledge that your earlier remark was in poor form, be man enough to say your apologies to everyone instead of picking and choosing to suit your ego. You compound your insult by calling it "phony umbrage" after implying that my friends and family who are emergency personnel who went to work voluntarily today deserved "natural selection."

At least, slink away from arguments like you usually do after your outlandish remarks are logically rebutted. Don't make things worse by adding insult to injury.

I gave you the courtesy of the benefit of doubt and lauded your apology by telling you I appreciated it. It turns out you neither deserve that courtey nor the appreciation. There is, of course, nothing I can or would do about it -- what can one do about an "internet commando"? -- other than point out that you are NOT a mensch.
