News article on how folks are lining up for forest service / fire fighting jobs.

Great, except that 1. the fires should burn 2. some fraction of firefighters are already arsonists; when they figure out its lucrative, more will start fires.

Fires are natural. Fire suppression is unnatural, and leads to unanticipated consequences.

Nero fiddled while California burned...

Oh: and its trivial for domestic "saboteurs" to start massive concurrent fires, which will at least distract the few remaining national guard who are not yet dying in foreign adventures.

Have a nice day. And hi to auntie arson!
