Hellfighter takes his battle to the Celestial Front

Legendary oil well firefighter Red Adair is dead. Being a Texan, my childhood probably contained a more Red Adair worship than those of you who never had the good fortune to live in the Lone Star State. He was/is recognized as a giant among men, probably mostly due to his apparent fearlessness, his will, and his drive to succeed at his chosen task. He is part of the same pantheon as Ross Perot and Lance Armstrong, and I hope that his passing was a peaceful as possible.
