Life imitating art

I’ve recently started watching Weeds, at the vehement insistence of many people close to me. I’ve since become hooked — the storyline, the characters, the triumphs and tribulations are all incredibly compelling. What’s scary, though, is when it starts becoming reality.

Remember the plot twist at the end of Season 3, when some drug dealers set fire to rival drug dealers’ marijuana field and ended up starting a wildfire? Well, this week it happened for real in Southern California. It’s been blazing up (so to speak) for a week now, and is being actively fought by more than 2,000 firefighters.

Let’s just hope there’s not a nationwide rash of people smothering grandmothers with pillows.
