Why is it that it takes only one match to start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Just curious, where is that quote from? If I need to use it someday, want to be able to cite the source if questioned. Thx

Hamburger, I think that was from the Pope's 'Evangeleum Vitae' from a few years back. Kinda like a religious 'state of the union', IIRC. I think you can find reference to it in a few articles over at [url]www.keepandbeararms.com[/url]
