    Now all we need to do is paint a forest mural all around its side and put solar panels on top (high level gun ports optional).

    Much has been done by the government requiring new construction to be far less vulnerable to forest fires by having tempered windows which won’t shatter from heat and low combustible siding. All properties are required to maintain a defensible space. All good, but fun to jest at since government is always fair game.

    The “elephant in the living room” problems are that our forests are so combustible from years of fire suppression, allowing the buildup of brush and dry materials that support devastating fires, and dangerous practices like tolerating homeless camps in these same forests instead of dealing proactively with the clear and dangerous fire threat they bring (there are humane and respectful ways to accomplish this).

    It would be a great public service if you could jest at those type of things, RL.

      Made you think about it, didn’t I?

      The theme that each individual is responsible for a “safe zone” around their home is right up a conservatives alley. The call for the government, (and who is that, anyway?), to clear vegetation from growing naturally in our forests is nothing but a veiled excuse to allow businesses access to logging in old growth areas, and also in the conservative playbook. And, of course, we can’t allow those who have lost all hope of participating in our societies mad rush towards feudalism to simply chuck it all and return to the land, because even conservatives have limits on how individual people can behave.

      Graze your cattle for free on public lands? No problem. Live there rather than under a bridge in some big city? Don’t be silly.

    Looks like the lid to a public restroom tall waste basket but more useful.
