By JOE GONZALES

The Thin Gold Line.

“Between the thin red line. The thin blue line, and the thin white line lies the thin gold line. This narrowest of lines represents those who are rarely seen, but always heard and appreciated. The calm voice in the dark. The hero’s behind the scenes. The golden link that holds it all together...Dispatchers.”
