Janesville fire tragedy

It's ironic that we were just talking about the impact of smoking (tax-wise) here in Wisconsin, over at the BBA.

In the news today is the story of a house fire started by a 4-year-old boy that killed his older brother and injured his younger brother.

His parents were smokers, and he used their lighter, which he'd done before. Only this time they didn't catch him in time.

I can't imagine the pain they will live with - I hope they honor the death of their older son and the lives of their two remaining sons by quitting smoking.
