    @Tom…Just Tom, it’s still a hazard though and you have shown that in your post. For one, you said 75% contained but that still means some of it isn’t contained and that’s a danger in itself. Not only that but you said “about” so you’re not even certain 75% could be contained.

    Props to Vince for doing the smart and noble thing here. He can make bad business decisions but when it comes to the welfare of fans, company and his wife’s chances in politics, he knows where his loyalties lie.

    makes sense to cancel it in the area where most people’s homes are burning down due to an out of control wildfire. it’s a pretty bad wildfire. my thoughts and prayers go out to the people affected by this wildfire. and thanks to the firemen and women on the front lines of this wildfire fighting with it trying to put it out.
