11 July 2017
Every year around this time parts of California burst into flames in a ritual known as wildfire season. Normally this grim event feels like a very local tribulation, but this year it's also being reported on at the same time that insane revelations about Don Trump Jr.'s brief foray into treason are also appearing on the front page and, man, it feels a little too on the nose, and I am totally ok with that. The wildfire story's headline---"In a new fire season, just what will ignite?" could easily be the name of the book some smart cookie is eventually going to write about this nonstop clusterfuck clown show that is Trump doing the worst imitation of a sitting president.
