Advantages of Landfill fire:

• The odor of burning garbage drowns out the overpowering aromas of patchouli oil and clove cigarettes left over from Arts Fest.

• It keeps the firefighters occupied, finally freeing up some space in the mustache-wax aisle at the greengrocers for the rest of us.

• If you live downwind from this disaster, the family dog is off the hook as flatulence scapegoat.

• The thick plumes of smoke obscure our little Gomorrah from the leering eye of any authoritative deities who peer down from above.

• While we're at it, any invasive and/or nosy extraterrestrials would be similarly thwarted, or at least inconvenienced. Take that, ALF and the aliens from *Aliens*.

• Many people forget that a fire can simply be part of the natural life cycle of a huge pile of shredded, vulcanized rubber.

• Providing a much needed shot in the arm to flagging local asthma-inhaler sales.

• It gives local news anchors the chance to haze (ha!) upstart cub reporters by sending them to provide live updates from the smoldering mess.

• Local authorities can make monetary lemonade out of this lemon by charging summer tourists admission to see "Iowa City's longest continuously burning pile of refuse (often imitated; never duplicated)."

• It's much more interesting and exciting than a fire at the recycling center.
