Southern California Burning

Devastating fires are burning up and down the southern coast of California. The air is smoky and dry as a bone. Your eyes sting and there’s that little nagging cough. It will probably get worse…

I live far enough away from fire area not to be concerned about the actual fire – just the air quality. One of the saddest things I’ve seen today is a remark from firefighters in San Diego – they just don’t have the resources to fight the fire.

I remember back a few years ago, after the last devastating fires in that county, they put on the ballot a parcel tax to get more funds that firefighters in San Diego desperately need. The homeowners voted it down. The anti-tax hysteria that has infected our country certainly means there is a high price to pay on the other end. I wonder if any of the people who voted against that extra hundred dollars a year are now looking at their burned out hulk of a home wishing they had voted differently.
