On the day they buried Capt. Herbie Johnson, a veteran TV anchor used his commentary section to urge city leaders to work out a new contract with Chicago firefighters. Here’s an excerpt:

We owe his memory, and his fellows, some payback – and the respect of a new contract. They’ve been saving lives without a contract for four and a half months.

City Hall, skimping on a contract, aiming to take away the firefighter clothing allowance and holiday pay and physical fitness incentive. Don’t do that, don’t insult Capt. Johnson’s memory. Think about him, feel for him.
