Red Sun

   Last evening the sun shone red. Not at sunset, but at about 8 p.m. The weather report mentioned that it was due to Canadian forest fires. Nothing in the news. nothing in the paper. It must have been a pretty big fire to have this much of an effect over 500 miles away. Lots of habitat, animals, maybe some homes destroyed. But not newsworthy. What was front page news? A visiting politician. The Twins won. A triathalon. Another murder in Minneapolis.

   It wasn't news, it's only Canada.
