This is the second part of our two part podcast detailing (our own) Mike Hatcher's involvement in the I-85 bridge collapse. As a result of the truly great job that Atlanta Fire Rescue did that day, a few members of the department were asked to be a part of a delegation of first responders from the incident who were invited to the White House.
It's not exactly a debate on the pros and cons of a 2 1/2, but you can't deny that it isn't everyday one of us gets invited to the White House to meet the President. And regardless of your politics, it's an invitation to the White House to meet the President. You probably aren't going to get one of those in your lifetime, so listen to Hatch.
