Nanny State Alert: California wants to ban campfires at the beach

Why does anyone who is not a flaming liberal still live in California?

Via The Washington Times:
“Since man first rubbed a pair of sticks together to make a fire, we’ve gathered around a campfire to cook food, enjoy good company and bask in the warmth of the glowing embers. Now the green spoilsports in Southern California want to take that all way, sending beach ring fire pits the way of the caveman. 
The South Coast Air Quality Management District will decide this summer whether to order the removal of 850 bonfire pits from Los Angeles and Orange county beaches on the pretense that fire is bad for the environment. To support its position, the agency concocted a study concluding that an evening beach fire creates as much particulate matter pollution as a diesel truck driving 564 miles
Man’s taming of fire enabled him to cook his food, bring light to the darkness, make stronger tools and survive the harshest of winters. It’s the one discovery upon which all civilizations are built. The assault on bonfires, fireplaces and stoves undermines one of the cornerstones of society. It’s what happens when government gets big enough to snuff out man’s greatest achievement.”

And I do have a couple of questions for you if you usually
do not mind. Could it be only me or does it look as if like
some of the comments come across like they are coming from brain dead
visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls of your communal sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
