Where's the fire?

Re "Four firefighters sue San Diego," Sept. 15

Let me see if I have this straight (no pun intended): Four of San Diego's male firefighters, ordered by their chief to ride in a gay pride parade, were so upset by a few sexual taunts from the crowd that they reportedly want San Diego to pay them $3 million in damages and therapy costs!

These are highly trained professionals who face burning buildings with aplomb, yet they can't take teasing from gay men.

The only "damage" here is this ridiculous lawsuit and what it's doing to the image of firefighters as brave community heroes.
