Last Friday, the Atlantic City Fire Department had a big problem
on its hands, so to speak. Several members were getting promoted to the position of Battalion Chiefs and Fire Captains. As is the case in the New York-New Jersey area, the media is invited and it might not be front page news, but it is news nevertheless. So when someone forgot to bring a Bible for the swearing in ceremony at City Council chambers, it looked like a bad omen for a day that should have been filled with pride and happiness.
Luckily, someone happened to have a great idea. One of the people attending the event was carrying around an Apple iPad
. A Bible app was installed on the tablet, and the ceremony went on as planned. We're not sure that this would have been considered suitable for a presidential swearing-in, but it obviously met the regulations of Atlantic City.
