An e-mail on how one blogger kept the info coming during the fires in northern San Diego County:
Hugh, there’s an amazing blog-story occuring, here in Fallbrook. Unable to find any/much info from, as you say, the MSM, a fellow named Brian Chubb took his website, The Game Fish, and ‘converted’ it into a blog– w/ thousands of entries from individuals– on both sides of the evac. line. While not always accurate, the fine grain of info disseminated was like nothing else available, and certainly calmed many around the world, including my family. We return to our very dirty home this am. Jim F.
