I don’t have much to say about the Reno accident that can’t be better said by those closer, more knowledgeable, and with a greater stake in the event. So I will say these two things, one borrowed and one mine.

1. I don’t have any words just now, but here’s my heart.

2. I listened to Reno EMS radio last night for hours. I am humbled and proud to be, though CAP and such as I am, a small and attenuated part of the brotherhood that performs those kinds of ES operations.
