There's a basic difference, Bill
Cops, firefighters, and the military get paid specifically to put their arses on the line. Their job is to deliberately go into harm's way to protect others, and I suspect a few more of them die than guys making chain-saw casings.
If you aren't willing to risk being shot or burned, stop complaining because those who are receive benefits and respect that you don't; they ARE different than you.
You have a lot of anger there, son. It would never have occurred to me to equate a firefighter who dies on the job to a hooker with AIDs.
