Considering the recent legislation passed, if a crazy fisherman along the Canal kills you, you get the full LOD death benefit!
You get a state job which starts your state/municipal clock ticking.
They do NOT do much L.E. (don't ask/don't tell)

Have a nice career!;)

I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

The location is terrific. Granted in winter it might not be comfy, but the midnight shift on the water, that's livin'. Rivers just don't cut it and we can't park right by the water.
