200 people were completely encircled by the current round of wildfires in California.
CALFIRE – the agency with the Suharto-esque title responsible for fighting the state’s wildfires – wrote them off.
And then, as the California National Guard went to rescue them anyway, CALFIRE told them to wave off.
The Guard did it anyway.

It was a moment of immense heroism, and a Berg’s Third Law reference if there ever was one.
It’s been a bad year for bureaucratic “experts”.
