If the Los Angeles Times Covered Fires the Way It Covered Obama's Economy...


Actually saw the fire come over the ridgeline driving home Sunday night. It was as though the devil had taken his finger and just drawn a line of flame along the hills; it was that smooth and that fast.

Of course the letters page of the Times is full of people wondering when the 'teabaggers' are going to protest spending so much money fighting the fires, or blaming the arson-caused fire on global warming.

Man-made global warming, indeed.

If I still lived there I would be asking for the LA Times to explain again why it was a good idea to stop clearing the underbrush that natural methods no longer do.

And why it was a good idea to stop maintaining the fire breaks in the ridges.

And where in that hell did all the money went that used to go toward that work.

And what the replacement cost will be--especially for the irreplaceable, like the Mt. Wilson Observatories.

Hey Larry, not just the observatory. All the radio/tv/emergency communication towers are up there. Can you imagine how vulnerable we'd be if those went? (shudder)
