California's Burning

Steven Greenhut, The American Spectator

You might have noticed that California is burning, as the state faces one of the most grueling wildfire seasons in history. To its credit, the Newsom administration is trying to increase some brush-clearance measures, but its difficulty in doing so speaks to the broader problem. Perhaps there’s not that much that any governor can do about this disaster at this late stage, but it would be ironic if this comes to define his governorship. Well, Newsom wouldn’t be the first politician who was undone because he was too focused on ideologically driven matters and not enough on the nuts-and-bolts issues of governance.
