Tony Clay, an auto detailer at a Mercer Island Shell Station for 21 years, was a minor celebrity last week. Clay was interviewed on a local news station after he pulled a man from the doorway of his burning apartment and alerted the manager of the Belltown building Sunday, June 5. There were no injuries from the blaze, but nine people and two firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation.
It”s unknown if comedian Henny Youngman”s famous phrase “Take my wife, please”” was the catalyst for naming cable television channel A&E”s reality TV show “Sell This House,”” but the name conjures up thoughts of desperation.
