Deja Vu...

It seems like yesterday,

San Diego on Fire

On October 25th, 2003 a small brush fire near Ramona began its devastating journey that within a week, and in combination with two other major fires in the County at the same time, would become the largest in California history - known as F i r e s t o r m 2003.

Recently, fires started again in San Diego. Today, the fires still burn and cloud the sky with ash. The night sky bears a distant brooding gloom that silences the city. I can't help but wonder how long it'll last.

A friend from Long Beach called me, to ask if Pooh and I were ok. Fortunately, our home is far from the fires, but there are fires to the north, the east, and to the south. One can't help but feel trapped...

somebody told me that San Diego is on fire because of all the porn in southern California.
I couldn't help but laugh.
Although, I have to admit, str8 porn is gross.
