While Southern California Burned...

Transterrestrial web designer Bill Simon has some interesting information on why the firefighters were "short of resources."

[update at 10 PM PST]

Here's a running thread on the subject at Reason's website, Hit and Run.

Wow. Nothing like having a powerful lobby to completely gum up the works. I think I'm going to talk to my Congress critters here in Maryland about at least giving this a hearing. Doubt I'll have much impact, but at least I can try.

Thanks for the link Rand.

So why haven't all the private firefighters been hired? (I can imagine at least one reason--some of them may be charging "extortionate" rates...)

OT (kinda -- you did mention your web designers). That's one of the few design sites I've seen whose philosophy I agree with. Also one of the few that loads on dialup in a reasonable amount of time.
