  1. Dear Kate, thank you for the update about the Dolan Fire Arsonist.
    Is it possible to for you to resend the link in support of the injured firefighters? Whether or not it is monetary or emotional support, it would be good to hear from all of us just how appreciative we are for their dedication. We all need to be reminded of their heroism and sacrifice.

  2. The f***ing Arsonist should have received more time, after the hell everyone went through for all those months!!
