Feinstein's Fantasy: No Playing Near Fire

Ohh-kaaaaay. Senator Diane Feinstein took the Senate floor today, proclaiming that state zoning laws should be altered to prevent people from residing in fire-prone areas. So we're not rebuilding Southern California then? Bang up plan there. Bang. Up. Plan. Seems like Senator Feinstein has quite a challenge ahead of herself should she choose to introduce a bill aimed at enforcing such a measure. Imagine the struggle her intern she will face when writing the "definitions" section. Fire prone areas. You know, like forests. Or earthquake zones, which would encompass. . .oh yeah, the entire state of California. Wait— is this actually a passive aggressive way of solving the mortgage crisis? Pure evil.
