    except the part about the families. As if it hurts less because they know. Again - I don't think there is any place for that kind of thing when responding to the horrible politicization of this by Republicans. "Yeah, it's a dangerous job" wasn't appropriate for the firefighters who ran up the Towers - and it's not appropriate for this.

    •  "Hurts less" that what? (0+ / 0-)

      Losing your spouse/parent/child on a battlefield? Losing a loved one to cancer? To your basic traffic accident? Nobody's saying losing a loved one is any easier in a dangerous job than in a cushy one. Shit happens. It hurts no more or less than any other circumstance of loss.
