Did you pay your firefighting fee?

This final note today, one that is sadly not ripped from the pages of The Onion. For want of a $75 fee, the Cranick family of Obion County, Tenn. has lost its home. The county contracts with the nearby town of South Fulton for fire services, hence the fee. Mr. Cranick forgot to pay this year, even though he’d been up to date in years past. When a fire broke out near his house last week, he called the fire department. They checked their records and let the house burn. Not much else to say.
