Was It Arson? Also: Laura Bush Is Not In The CountryS

The fact that Laura Bush was in Abu Dhabi talking about breast cancer today was probably the 1023rd most important thing that happened today, but what a picture. The FBI is investigating the possibility that the wildfires at all caused by a band of suicide arsonists — ecoterrorists reenacting the post-Gulf War oil fires? is that the idea? — and Joe Francis's new self-promotional website quotes Socrates saying "an unexamined life is not worth living," and clearly all the people keeping this story on the most-viewed list of the largest newspaper serving Southern California for the third day going agree.

I don't know how to tie any of this together before I leave the house ten minutes ago, but maybe you can help, and maybe I'll post later. Hang in there, guys.
