Oh, sorry, bad link because it goes to a story behind a paywall. Anyway, this story is about a politician and former firefighter who is collecting a big disability pension while still running marathons and Triathlons. Here's the link if you can get to it:

Kind of hard to have spent "several months" on Ground Zero cleanup dutyif he retired in November 2001 when the attacks occurred Sept.11, 2001.

And FDNY members are famously not paid all that well, though pensions get bulked up by those who add tons of overtime hours in their last year of work. He's receiving "an $86,000 disability pension from the New York Fire Department," a three-quarters salary pension, which is a lot of money. Something about this doesn't add up.
