The Pesach tragedy

Golda on the Williamsburg fire:
I'm afraid this is going to turn into a very long session of blaming the victim and using the Williamsburg residents' "otherness" as an excuse to do so. We've all seen the tragic stories of Christmas trees going up in flames and injuring or killing people. There is at least one of those incidents every December. I'm still waiting for the Fire Department's safety guidelines which read "for a safe Christmas, don't put lights on your tree." I think I'm in for a long wait.
