    What a spin this is!

    "Fire officials told reporters about two hours after the two-alarm blaze was reported that it looked suspicious. But some 45 minutes later, they changed the story, saying that the incident was still being investigated"

    Everywhere else, it's being reported as and electrical fire, starting with an extension cord.

    And then this is added for effect: " Reporters were barred from entering."

    They never are... But hey, throw it in there for effect.
    He probably had it started himself....great publicity.

    Now there, Ethics. Restrain yourself -- you may be talking about ouir next president.

    But I notice that the story did not mention insurance -- how much did he have.

    I seriously doubt anyone intentionally started it. But that's not stopping his followers from making it into an issue.... it's the only paper that I've seen even hint at some sort of conspiracy.

    Hmmm....interesting question. What I was wondering, since he's calling for all these donations to help rebuild, if the money would somehow end up in the campaign coffers.

    Perhaps he couldn't find all the bugs the CIA planted and decided to just burn the place down. ;)
