I don’t think so. We also lost jazz organist Jimmy McCriff
and the composers for the themes from Star Trek (Alexander
Courage) and Andy Griffith (Earle Hagen). Prob not on death pool either.
How about the fire in Peabody the other day (I drove right bay it)? Huge apt building wiped out because someone threw out
a lit cigarette into some mulch (spread to building). I mean,
did we not learn ANYTHING from Smokey Bear?...
should say McGriff, and “BY it”
I'm still waiting as the line of cars is long, and the light quick. Up comes one of Barnstables five, yes five, different fire departments. A ladder truck(why?) with four guys, a pumper truck with about four guys, and a large pickup type truck with a couple of guys. Three trucks, ten guys, no fire.
I pull out and pull into McDonalds and watch the show, but first in the best Howie Carr tradition, get something to eat. I watch a assistant deputy to the deputy fire chief pull up in a full size suburban. All eleven of these guys now mill around for forty or so minutes, no fire, and tie up traffic.
It's different on the Cape.
