Feng Shui superstitions strongly discourage the giving of sharp objects, like swords, knives, and scissors. MayorSlay.com, however, believes that one important exception to the rule is probably the gift of a life-saving device.
So, we gladly note that two companies, The Daniel & Henry Co. and Fireman's Fund Insurance Company, have presented $5,000 today to the St. Louis Department to allow Chief Sherman George and his firefighters to purchase new hydraulic cutters.
The device, according to a press release from Fireman's Fund, uses upgraded cutting technology to cut through the case-hardened steel found in late model automobiles. The Fire Department's current crop of shears can't cut that steel.
Call Atle Erlingsson at 415 899-6073, if you want the details.
