What do I call that Walter? Why, I dunno. I guess I'd call that Walter "Walter." WWWCTW? (What would Walter call that Walter?)

... Walter, maybe?

Here's the thing that bothers me: 911 dispatchers regularly deal with crises that never get into the news. Suddenly, during a 911 Center controversy where Falk has obvious political interests, she holds a formal press conference commending a Center employee.

Not to say, of course, that Mr. Waite didn't perform above-and-beyond (and kudos to him, btw), but where are the ceremonies commending those who have done similarly well outside of this current controversy?

Or was this a uniquely difficult situation for a 911 dispatcher?

I myself have assisted in the delivery of 3 babies over my dispatching career. However, none of them were preemies on the side of the road in cold weather (though one interesting one was in the parking ramp of Meriter Hospital). I received a stork pin for one of them, which is the normal recognition if we have followed all protocols to the scripted letter. Any deviation from the word-by-word script, no matter how slight, no stork pin.

What happened to her face, anyways? She always looks like she just got a great big shot of the ol' novacaine on just one side. Was she always like that? If she reads this and gets hurt feelings, I'm sorry, love the show but never sew.

Do you think it's funny to make fun of stroke victims? Maybe we could sew a half a smiley face on her. Would that make you feel more comfortable watching her patch together wonderful designs on her Singer 1000 sewing machine?

Sweet Jesus, some of you people are mean and suck.

What about poor Nancy Mistele? Everyone's being mean to her.

Maybe if she had partial facial paralysis, she'd be more likable.

No matter how slight? What if the situation is something other than pregnant-woman-delivering-in-a-car? I dunno, what if there's an accident/drunk husband/UFO involved?

Regardless, my point still stands-- stork pin versus press conference? I'm sure it's a very nice stork pin.

Btw, I'm definitely interested in hearing the Meriter parking ramp story-- not to be critical, but just out of curiosity.

Tell you what:

I was home alone one night and all of a sudden started puking large amounts of blood. Ruptured veins in the esophagus (varices), an often fatal situation. I called 911, they did everything right, and the ambulance was here in a flash. My life was saved in the ER; they had to replace a third of my blood.

There are thousands of us out here with stories of successful emergency response like this. To see 911 treated so shabbily makes me furious.
