Bush suggestion was to take the overgrowth and allow the paper plants to us it for making paper but California said no and this is the result for we all knew that a forest fire would burn up homes and cars and everything in it's path. California should pay for this for this was THEIR IDEA to allow the growth just to continue. It is time that California pay for their own decisions and not have the whole country bail them out. They need to learn we are not against them but they will not listen to anyone. Time they need to learn a very hard lesson. Everyone agreed the undergrowth needed to go EXCEPT for California residents and now they are paying for it. How many animals have their killed with their own stupidity!!!!
