Sigh is right.

Take your complaint to the owners of the fertilizer company, dude.

I actually signed up to respond. That guy is a butthead. If I were at CVS, that guy's letter would get a big "Ignore."

Texas Governor Rick Perry has had radio ads running in Chicago touting that Texas is business friendly, meanless regulation.

How's that small-government business climate treating you, West, Texas?

Meaning , less regulation.

Although we do have meanless regs here. Freudian slip.

You have no idea if it was a lack of regulation or inspections that contributed to the explosion. It's pure speculation.

Apparently the Texas plant had 1,350 times the amount of the chemical that would trigger oversight. So, this might be one of those times when just a tad more government would not have been a horrible thing.

Actually, it was reported that there were serious safety violations that had not been cleared up.

Sounds like the federal government had oversight:

Exactly, and anything good that has happened is solely attributable to Obama.

I didn't say anything about who was to blame, administration-wise. But I do blame the owners/management of the plant.

I got in my car this morning and there was a spider hanging from a single web strand from my rear view mirror. He was real tiny and was either asleep of dead. I grabbed him with a napkin snd squished him for good measure.

While everyone csn donate(or not) to whatever they want, fact is, this Texas disaster has gotten very little media coverage compared to Boston. I'd feel slighted too if there was a disastrr in my home and seemingly no one cared cause of a disaster in a bigger city.

I do actually. Fox News ran a headline that says the fertilizer plant didn't follow the rules. Not that I equate Fox News with an OSHA inspection, but for this sort of thing their bias should run in the other direction. Thus I find them believable. In addition, most plant explosions, unless caused by an outside force like lightening are usually traceable to some failure to follow maintenance or safety rules.

The simplest explanation, and all that.

I think there will be plenty of time to judge once they find out what caused it. It's all speculation right now.

Are you referring to Bush's stint as Texas governor?

Sounds like the feds primarily had responsible to oversee such an operation. So I don't know why you are blaming the state of Texas. Do we really need state and federal inspectors? Not really, if the feds do their job....
