"When Robert L. Key Sr. was formally sworn in Wednesday as Knoxville's new fire chief, it was in a ceremony outside the Knoxville Fire Department headquarters building....why, exactly, do we need to swear in a fire chief? I mean, who cares really, but why does a fire chief have an oath of office? Are we afraid they might betray the city and start putting out fires for Sevierville instead?
As Key took the oath of office from City Judge John Rosson Jr., he stood close to the department's antique fire engine, which is on permanent display."
