Editorial: "So far so good this wildfire season"

The unnamed Courier editor seems to put an awful lot of store on luck to keep our town from burning down. I'd prefer to rely on informed and alert citizens, good preparation and our fabulous fire-fighters.

Sure, it's a manner of speaking, but it promotes a certain passivity about everything, and I'm sorry, I'm just not down for that, guys. You'll go to any length to eliminate the passive voice from a paragraph, how about from your own thinking?

You're right, it's not a matter of luck, which is only for the faithless and faint-of-heart.
