I shouldn’t be surprised by this sort of thing from our elected officials, after all, I live in Texas. I’m sure Louis Gomert (“America’s Craziest and Dumbest Congressman”) believes even crazier stuff than this. I like the way the UK tabloid The Sun seems a bit concerned by this one. This is by folks who make their living off things like Elvis and Bigfoot sightings. Being Jewish, all I can think is: can I get access to one of these lasers? BTW, wildfires started by flashes of light from the sky might be — lightning?
I didn’t know Carl Hiaasen was still writing newspaper articles. Ran across this the other day. I had to read it twice.
