Are we not under a burning ban?

Fort Gordon got us on one side and a certain leading citizen decided to get us on the other. Local asthmatics did not appreciate the controlled burn. Second hand smoke is hazardous to your health. The government has determined this to be true. Of course, no announcement other than Fort Gordon's 200 acres. Savannah River burn was probably 1000 acres. Check out that "burning permit" GA Forestry Service. Fact: Money rules.
