Australia is burning - bushfires in nearly every state

Woke up to lots of mail in my inbox; among them, this one:-
When we got up this morning the sun was red- it looked both wonderful and scary -and there has been a smoke haze over the city all day - Australia is burning - bushfires in nearly every state - here in Victoria and up into Canberra, where over 500 homes have been lost, and into NSW- the bush is tinder dry because of our prolonged drought - and to think that nearly every fire has been deliberately lit.

Above is an extract from an e-mail from my Ozzie pal, Jen. It reminded me about the basic tendency to evil inside us all. BTvS had it sussed perfectly when Angel told Buffy she had to kill the man, not the monster.
