Is it just me

Is just me that thinks that the news media should stop yelling fire in a room full of pyromaniacs?

Every time the wind blows in Southern California every news program on the air runs around yelling “High fire danger!  High fire danger!”  The pyros rub their crazy little hands together and run and get their matches.  If there really are high winds there is always the danger of power lines going down or someone’s campfire getting out of control, but I’d really like to know what the percentages are.

There were high winds a couple of days ago and not in the area of the fires near my home.  Yesterday you could genuinely call ‘breezy.’ 

It just seems to me that the news media loves a good fire and if they don’t have one, they’ll just encourage someone to set one.
