    Those firefighters ought to be more concerned with a blunder of putting in the firemain piping in westbound tunnel of I-64. Because of this stupid retrofit, too many big trucks have become wedged in plugging up traffic. Until the hampton Roads area considers building some kind of a rail tunnel or bridge between Newport News and Norfolk, they will have traffic problems.
