The devastating wildfires in Southern California have caused at least $1 billion in damage in San Diego County alone, officials said Wednesday, as easing wind gave firefighters hope that they could begin to gain ground against the flames.

The fires, in their fourth day, had destroyed 1,500 homes and caused at least a half-million people to flee - the largest evacuation in state history. At least 1,200 of the damaged homes were in San Diego County, and officials believe that number will rise.

    A billion? That's cheap! We waste that much every 2-1/2 days in Iraq. At that rate we could afford to burn those houses down and rebuild them again three times a week, every week, for the past four years and then into the future indefinitely - because there is no end in sight for Iraq...
