On August 6, 2000, John McColgan, a fire behavior
analyst from Alaska, was analyzing the behavior of
the fire in the Bitterroot National Forest in
Montana, and had his digital camera along. He took
the attached striking photograph. Being on
salaried time at the time, he couldn't market the
picture privately, so he released it to the public

This story would have brought 300 comments if the inhabitant of the White House had been Slick Willie. Now that the "conservatives" are in charge, there's hardly a whimper when federal malfeasance makes itself known.
I'll repeat what I said on an earlier thread:
After the fires are finally extinguished (by rain, most likely -- not by the thousands of firefighters digging trenches by hand), Congress needs to launch a top-to-bottom inquiry into the Forest Service.
Incredibly, the U.S. Forest Service turned them down. Kim Martin, the Incident Commander for the Forest Service, told Ron "The equipment is too heavy. It will tear up the land."
"We'd rather see it burn" added Martin
