While I’m gathering my thoughts on weightier events from the last few days, I couldn’t resist a few takes on this wire photo that turned up in Time’s “Pictures of the Week” gallery Friday. (See caption below.)
> April and Michael’s 15 minutes of flame.
> Honey, did you remember to pay the private fire department bill?
> My love is on fire. (I like this one too.)
> Till drought do us part.
>>I thought you were in charge of the flowers.
>> America: open for business throughout the apocalypse.

Because of the approaching fire, the minister conducted an abbreviated ceremony and the wedding party was evacuated to a downtown Bend park for the reception.)
