Burn Baby Burn

I’m sure most of you here in town have heard about this already, so this is for the folks out of town. A 31 year old man was SO upset over the Kern High School District’s decision to change the holidays from Winter & Spring to Christmas and Easter, then went downtown and set himself on fire. Parked right in front of the court house building the dude first set a Christmas tree on fire, and a flag, then he poured lighter fluid on himself and turned into a human torch. Oh. My. God. When questioned about her son, his mother said that, ““He’s a very sweet person. He just has a strong opinion.”

I’d call that an understatement.

    Why did he burn an innocent Christmas tree and not Chad Vegas???

  2. I know! And we had a shortage this year! I heard we ran out of trees!
