A truly burning problem

Document Actions

There's a danger in praising journalism simply because it agrees with one's preconceived notions, but I'll take that risk. Your fire coverage in the Oct. 17 issue was terrific (HCN, 10/17/11, "A burning problem"). It's such an important story. The graphic of state-by-state comparisons was particularly useful. I've been so preoccupied with New Mexico, especially the Las Conchas Fire, that I hadn't thought through how we might compare to other states. It really illustrates one of the contemporary journalism holes y'all fill -- thinking about the whole West.
