The Governor of Massachusetts is giving the state's Fire Marshal's Award to the Fire Chief that sounded the alarm about how dangerous modular houses are.  Remember that ordinances were passed in the state defining what can and can't be used for drywall adhesion in modular homes despite numerous studies and research being given them that proved that the homeowner himself caused the fire.   

Yep, wacko-ness confirmed!

Boston's Fox TV Undercover reporter, Mike Beaudet, the publicity seeking reporter that looks for problems and then twists the facts to sensationalize the news, will probably be getting recognized by the Governor too.  That would make our industry's day complete. 

Oh well, it just proves that all it takes to win the MA Fire Marshal Award is a bull headed Fire Chief investigating a fire caused by the homeowner and a TV reporter that exaggerates stories and an industry to blame.

Bravo, Coach. It looks as if the inmates are in charge of the asylum. This guy's 15 minutes of fame has stretched to 1/2 hour. I wonder how many other Mass. residents want to be spoken of in the same sentence with Senator Ted.
