Washington: Candidate's house burns

Darcy Burner is a Democratic candidate for the 8th Congressional district representing Washington state. On July 1 her 5-year old son woke her up and told her the house was on fire. She escaped with her family and just the clothes on her back. It turns out that a faulty lamp in her son's room started the fire.

Check out the shirt. It says "end war" in XML code, which is used on web sites. Burner used to work for Microsoft and is a geek... obviously.

This 2+ minute video shot just after the fire was knocked down is worth viewing. It also explains how the family's Golden Retriever was rescued. Burner had a remarkably good attitude, considering the circumstances.

If you are familiar with Senator John Tester of Montana, you will enjoy Darcy's 37-second campaign ad.
