A salute to Officer Joe Chambers

Sometimes life does not imitate art. Sometimes it just imitates life.

And we're glad it does.

A few years back, Joseph Chambers, then a Ridley teen and junior volunteer firefighter, made headlines for his heroic actions in helping pull a Philadelphia police officer from his burning police cruiser after it crashed on a Philly street.

It was appropriate. Chambers had a burning desire of his own - to one day be a police officer himself.

A few years later, Chambers has seen that dream come true.

He's not a part-time officer in two Delaware County towns.

On our editorial page today, we salute Officer Chambers, and the idea of life imitating life.
