Fire on the Carmel

You don't need this blog to know about the gigantic fire on the Carmel, nor do I have much to say about it.

Simple decency requires that I note the alacrity with which Turkey sent assistance (two fire-fighting planes).

A few days down the road we'll all start talking about levels of preparedness and lack of it. Our airwaves are already full of the first versions, but they seem to me informed by excitement, not by information. So I"ll refrain, for the time being.

I think I'll try to raise a stink!
