America is burning

If you have a chance to look at the front page of yesterday's LA Times, do so.

The banner headline: "Roberts Confirmed as Chief Justice."

The banner image directly under that headline: a wide angle aerial shot of the California fires. Lots of red and orange, and huge plumes of smoke.

The size and juxtaposition conveys the (ostensibly unintentional) message that now that Roberts is in, we should all prepare for a long run of hellfire and damnation. It's quite poetic, in a sick way...
