Cartoon #236: “Southwestern Wildfires”

Title: Southwestern Wildfires; Text: Frying Pans (Frying pans in the shapes of New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, with appropriate panhandles.)

Wildfires continue in New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, all states with ‘panhandle’ regions. Fueled by dead and dormant winter foliage and grass, in addition to extreme drought, wildfires are destroying small towns and killing people. State governors have declared emergencies and disaster areas. Burn bans are in effect, but are not idiot proof. Hopefully, this cartoon will burn warning images into the minds of the ignorant and uninformed.
