No More Malibu

So I woke up this morning and hopped online to see what was happening in the world. Lo and behold, my school is right up close to the latest batch of Malibu wildfires. This happens quite a bit in Malibu, so though somewhat concerned, I just think about how many times I sat in my dorm room enjoying a day off from classes while friends and family called in hysterics wondering if I was about to be burned alive. Hopefully the same luck will continue with this one--and in the mean time we can enjoy the melodrama of yellow journalism that only a fire in Malibu can incur.
Check out the articles Wells so expertly found:

And of course, this article deals with our most pressing concern (check out the comments on the end)

And Pepperdine people, don't pull a Brooks...and you theater kids know what I mean.

Google News is almost the same thing as expertise... Still, I was pretty pleased with that particular little gem.

Also: "'We're all scared to death and we have nowhere to go,' Susan Nuttall, 51, told The Associated Press as she sat in her black Mercedes in a cul-de-sac after fleeing her condominium near the Pepperdine campus. She was wearing a bathrobe and holding her Chihuahua." http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/10/21/wildfire.ca/index.html

You clearly don't appreciate the magnitude of the threat here. While Malibu may not be the most densely populated area of California it does have an unusually dense concentration of silicone which is highly flamable. You think those 75 mile an hour winds can kick up a fire storm just you wait til those lips and all get hot.
