California wildfires rage on, trigger political debate

The sky over Los Angeles is a smokey haze, and the noontime sunlight filtering through it has the orange glow of dusk. World Ahead's offices, located in LA's "South Bay" area, are far from any of the encircling fires, but the smoke from them has covered the entire basin.

As is the case with any natural disaster, it was only a matter of time before politics came into play. Harry Reid blames global warming for the fires. Newsweek lauds the Governator for "avoiding another Katrina." And "Brownie" is taking a shot at the White House for the federal response.

Meanwhile, our local NBC affiliate reports that over 1 million residents have been displaced by the 16 wildfires now burning around the Southland. Please remember to keep these people and our firefighters and National Guard troops in prayer.
