The Death Of A Tragedy

I now pronounce the California wildfires officially over. Or at least our interest in them. We gave it three days, time to move on.

Sure the flames are still burning and smoke is still swirling, but Matt Lauer has returned from the field to the studio. And we all know what that means—a story has just been downgraded from “major national tragedy” to “slightly more important than the segment about the convenience store clerk who fought off a gun-toting robber with an axe.”

We return you to our regularly scheduled programming: Where’s Madeleine McCann?
