Ed Note: My first week in the residential fire sprinkler business brought a call from the Montclaire fire department, wanting me to verify that it costs five thousand dollars per house that the building industries had asserted to the city council. "Not one third of that" I replied. Puzzled, I asked ; why would they lie?
His reply was passionate: "Because they do not carry out the charred bodies". Enough said. Ever since, I have found these type of arguments self serving and naive.
