and second:

I can't look at Meatloaf anymore after his part in Fight Club.

I do have to defend the 911 operator though. It's (in most places) a stressful job, lots of long hours and OT. The environment does not promote healthy eating habits, among other things.

That video was decidedly one sided. Not saying it was right, but human mistakes happen. You hear about 911 operators "effing" up all the time, but people forget about the other 150 to 200 calls one operator may have successfully handled that day.

My blood runs cold, my memories have just been sold.

Sigh.

I was so dissappointed that Meatloaf sold out. Bat out of Hell is one of my favorite albums.As teenagers we would sing the entire album. Oh well very sad

That 911 operator falling asleep is pretty screwed up. I hope that person is let go! At least no one got hurt right?
I saw the Meatloaf commercial a while back. To me that song was his lone good song. I thought the commercial stupid but that his son looked just like him.
I am following so much growing crisis today it is mind boggling!
