The scene: The Polay kitchen at breakfast. My wife, Brandy, and I are at the dining room table, sipping coffee while the kids scurry to get ready for school.
Sean, rising from the table: Guess I better get my act together and get to work.
(Blackberry buzzes on the counter.)
Brandy: Guess so. They're already buzzing you.
Sean, reading from Blackberry: "Route 6 West: Police and rescue responding to rollover, prior to exit 3 westbound, traffic in area slowed."
(Siren volume growing in the distance.)
Brandy: That must be where they're going.
(Fire truck races by our house, headed in the direction of Exit 3. It's followed shortly thereafter by a police car.)
Sean: Now that's what I call a breaking news alert!
