  1. Drat. Another good taste fire, foiled.

    Will someone please tell me _before_ torching one of the neighborhood architectural obscenities, so that I can throw my cat up a tree as the fire department goes by?

  2. You’re a sarcastic asshole!!! Try living in a building with a fire that claims the lives of 5 people and 4 of them children ! May you rot in hell! Fires are serious!

  3. I was waiting for the bus at QFC as multiple fire units (pictured) passed by. I was actually relieved that they turned on Republican, since I live on the other side. Perhaps I’m selfish that way, Tom? It would be harrowing to be in a building that caught fire, damage to my unit or not. Glad everyone is relatively ok. But also that my curiosity was satisfied by the reliable CHS blog! :)

  4. It’s perfectly appropriate to feel relief that no harm came to your or anyone in your life. It’s entirely different to make jokes and sport of the misfortunes of others. rbyanh stooped pretty low to do that.
