You'd think that fire would be a great equalizer. And Oprah, apparently, tried to treat it that way. But something just struck me about this statement:
"I don't have kids, so the most important thing for me is my dogs," Winfrey said. "And so we already had a plan for getting the dogs out and going to the Four Seasons in Westlake because they take dogs."
The concern for family and pets is so normal, and shows the equalizing effects of fire and the same needs that everyone have for an evacuation plan.

Of course, then things get weird. What's Oprah's plan? The Four Seasons in Westlake. For most people it's getting to the nearest high school that has cots set up.
