We have no empathy

About a year ago, we gave the Freeman's Google Glass device (the one I goofily wear often) to a Kingston firefighter, to wear while at work for a day. The idea was to see what he saw. We had previously done that with a police officer and thought it was an interesting approach to story. It's often a good idea to try to see things from other people's perspective. Empathy, I've heard it's called.
Here's a 'Citizen Kane' spoiler as a definition of a spoiler text alert:
"like some guy throwing your window open and shouting, “Rosebud is his sled!” even if it’s justifiable as news."If you haven't seen 'Citizen Kane,' it's a movie that makes for great gifs. Also, Rosebud is his sled.
