The spray killed it - really

Apparently, Workers killed the statehouse Christmas tree by spraying it with fire-retardant after drying it with industrial fans. I love bureaucracy in action. Rhode Island is tripping over its knee jerk reaction to a fire that killed 100 people a few years ago. Now they have onerous laws meant to protect the public but in fact ruin what the law was intended to protect. They cannot even cut a new tree without having a fire marshal present to certify the tree's freshness (prior to drying it and spraying it with fire retarding chemicals of course).

I'm laughing so hard it hurts..
