FDNY bans colorful company names and logos

I know that this may be old news to those of you in NYC but I just learned of it...and frankly I'm disgusted. It is a sad comentary on the direction of the fire service in this country...increasingly nerds and bean counters are running the show instead of jakes. Its a damn shame if you ask me. If this is the most important thing the FDNY brass has to worry about then things must be going swimingly in the big apple. Excellent way to destroy the unique character and morale of a great department all in one shot. Check out this story.

That is just plainly retarded if you ask me. What do places called the "Animal House" or the "Hookers House" do to people?? It's just new people in Fire Administration that have no idea what TRADITION really means to these men and women.

Hey! The Armed Services has their mascots & slogans, why can't FDNY? No one dares to say the Armed Services are "unprofessional." Yeah it may have something to do with pride, but, what's wrong with being proud & showing that your proud of what you're part of?
There's nothing wrong with a little pride.
