Governor's Mansion Fire

No, Rick Perry didn't lean his shiny coif too close to the tanning lamp. A broken motion sensor, only one trooper on duty, and a Molotov cocktail. Alone, these don't amount to much. Together, they resulted in catastrophic damage to a 152-year-old state treasure. This blaze was the result of a lone arsonist, someone who authorities believe was "angry" with the government. Someone really should have told that guy Dubya moved out eight years ago.
