I believe that the fires in Southern California are no coincidence. There have been twelve started since the Malibu Blaze began this morning. This is or could be an act of terrorism. As long as the winds are still at their disposal, terrorists can inflict much destruction if the match lites the right place. There will most likely be many more new ones before the winds subside. How else are they starting? Embers don't just float twenty miles.

One wonders if Adrian has ever learned of spontaneous combustion in school? All it takes is dry grass, a piece of metal or glass lying in the sun, etc.......If people didn't learn it in scouts, should have learned it in school.

Thank god there are some people with reason. It's a sad state when everyone immediately blames terrorism for disasters such as this. Please people, wait for the facts to come in before jumping to such radical conclusions.
