A Burning Problem is a short satirical essay on education reform.
From the introduction -
We have a problem in this nation. Fires in small buildings close to fire stations are being put out quickly and fires in large buildings far away from fire stations are taking longer to be put out and need more manpower. This is unacceptable. All Fires should be put out in an average amount of time with the same number of personnel.
"This insightful satire frames the current public school system in America as if it were a local fire department. Not only does it help to inform the reader on issues such as No Child Left Behind, it also shines a much-needed light on why the system doesn't work. Although the language could be smoother at times, the smart metaphor will have you snickering."

About the Author
I am somewhat of a rarity - A Tucsonan that was actually born in Tucson, Az. Other than one semester of college at Northern Arizona University where I learned I don't like snow, always lived in the Tucson valley and consider myself a certified desert rat. I enjoy reading and writing many different styles and genre, from political satire to mindless theater. Sometimes I write with a message in mind, sometimes I don't. When I'm not writing I enjoy traveling, photography, riding motorcycles, building and flying model aircraft and trying new stuff. You can find more about me and find out about new releases on Facebook by looking up Renaissance Redneck Media. I hope you get something from my writings, even if it is just a laugh. Thanks for reading.
