Actually, I just wanted to use that headline. The rest of this post is garbage.
Yes, it appears my neighborhood is burning to the ground. This weekend there was a fire at a retirement home condo just across the river. Then last night, between ten-thirty and God knows how late (Smittygirl and I slept through it, or at any rate when we did wake up we didn't identify why), two buildings a few blocks away from mi casa caught fire. The one was actually a nice historic theatre, although it had been vacant for many years.
I like the fact that this newspaper article points out that "customers' pizzas were left sitting inside the shop" at the Domino's. I guess they get their pizzas free then, right?
