    Sounds like lawyers bucking for a percentage to me. 10s of thousands of clean-up workers, one could expect those retired since would die at the rate of 3 per day especially since they spent adult lifetimes huffing carcinogens from thousands of fires.

    I am with qwerty on this one. I did a career in the state service and we had all kinds. Some got hurt legit and got over it while others claimed they got hurt and we're looking for a free ride on disability. Same thing when I ran the Honda shop in KY/WV and the customers worked in the coal mines. Many went to work in the mines just to get hurt looking for a permanent check for doing nothing.

    9/11 is a treasure trove for any slugs that can prove they were in the vacinity and a very sad situation for those who really are hurt and suffering. Lawyers on the other hand are getting very rich chasing these ambulances.

    Two of them were 58 and one was 56 years old. Thats probably younger than the average age of TW owners.

    Had they ridden TWs instead of fire trucks obviously stress factors would have played a lesser role, but to each his own.

    Anywho, I expect many firefighters die younger than normal due to cancer because of a career of inhaling chemicals and carcinogens that are byproducts of combustion. I'd like to see some relevant and valid science comparing the illness/death rates from 9-11 workers to illness/death rates from people doing the same work on other job sites. I expect they are the same. Until such science is done I will not consider any claim valid.
