  • Photographer's choice: Sometimes life rolls out in front of a photojournalist perfectly. Like the Sunday my dog went to a local mall to tell Santa what he wanted for Christmas. This brother and sister were ahead of us. They have different owners but double teamed Santa this year for old times sake. Only appearing online because of a tight paper the next day, I hope it puts a smile on your face as big as mine.

    Colorado wildfires

    A raging wildfire destroyed dozens of houses overnight and charred land on the edges of the Air Force Academy on Wednesday, while thick smoke and intense, towering flames kept officials from learning the full scope of damage to Colorado's second-largest city. The wildfire doubled in size overnight to about 62 square kilometres, and has so far forced mandatory evacuations for more than 32,000 residents, Colorado Springs emergency management director Brett Waters said.- AP
