Man on dog

Posted by: Hammer / 9:24 AM

There's something just awful about the juxtaposition of these two stories. The American Heart Association has revised its CPR guidelines. The guidelines emphasize more chest compressions and fewer breaths. According to an NPR story, at least part of the impetus for the change is the reluctance of regular Joes to touch lips. What's the use in being a hero, I suppose, if everyone thinks you might be gay?

On the other hand, this firefighter is getting national attention for giving mouth-to-mouth to a dog.

There's no sign of first responders being reluctant to administer mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to same sex patients. But it's a shameful sign of national sexual immaturity when a guy breathing into another guy's mouth is "oogy" but a guy breathing into a dog's snout is heroic.
