Risking your life for strangers
Elizabeth Applebaum reports on the Detroit nursing-home fire from yesterday:
"Everyone here is still talking about the fire. It caused millions of dollars in damages, but no one was hurt, and despite unusually high winds the fire was contained to the one building (there are four senior housing apartment buildings, all of which are close to each other).
I can't stop looking at the photos from yesterday. It's one of those things that gives me faith in humanity: firemen and women risking their lives for absolute strangers."
