"Hell in all its fury has visited the good people of Victoria in the last 24 hours."

At least 49 dead in Australian wildfires.

Just saw the weirdest bit on CNN.

It flew Camille Paglia up to Mt. Redoubt, the Alaska volcano. She was wearing this red gown with a red hood, inspecting the entrails of a crow, with the mountain in the background. She was ranting about Bruce Springsteen and flicking organ bits into a bronze tray of glowing coals.

Hmm ... apparently the death of scores of foreigners in a once-in-a hundred year natural disaster doesn't even rate a comment on this site. As opposed to 25 comments on a photo of a muddy parking lot.

Meh. It's Australia in the summertime. They have a lot of bush. Thusly bad fires.
