From the picture, it looks more like they closed Gordonsville Rd at Louisa Rd. which would make more sense, so traffic doesn't have to turn right then turn left onto a road made busy by the detour.

It must be wonderful to have been blessed with 20/20 hindsight.

Sprinklers are great, but the up-front cost to retrofit a house is still substantial.

More people died in house fires last year than we're killed by guns, think about that

Nonsense. The CDC reckon there were around 3,110 fire deaths in 2010. The national fire protection association estimate 2,570 civilian deaths per year.

There are around 30,000 gun deaths in the United States each year. Even if we exclude suicides, you're still way off with homicides by firearm regularly being over 10,000 per year.

Hey you are correct, behind poisoning, and motor vehicle accidents guns are 3rd most popular way to die, so 2500-3000 deaths everyyear in the U.S by home fires, but if you add other fires you are just over 5000 deaths which doesn't include anyone who didn't die at the scene, but in your liberal mind 5000 deaths is nothing, because it isn't glamorous to push for fire sprinklers, but to ban guns, now wouldn't that be an accomplishment, just ask the Armenian's.

Hey, let's get this straight. I said nothing about banning guns. I never even brought up the guns issue. That was raised by the guy further up who was busy pushing sprinkler sales.

All I did was point out that retrofitting sprinklers is expensive.

When you compare it to installing things like linked dual sensor smoke alarms in every room, you can likely reach an equivalent level of safety for the residents for a fraction of the cost of installing sprinklers.

If you're building a new house, sprinklers probably make sense. if you own your house there may be other strategies to keep you and your family safe. Everything else is just things, and that's why we have home insurance - to replace things.

Here is the kicker, that particular house has always been rented by illegals. They have been renting the home for years. I thought it was odd that Channel 29 did not interview any of the victims until I recognized the house. Most news agencies interview the victims but I guess they did not have an interpreter on hand. These people most likely have lost everything which is truly sad but they will get assistance from the U.S. Government, don't worry. I highly doubt the landlord will rebuild. I am sure he or she will raze the home and take the rest of the money to the bank and then sell off the property.

Well neighbors are relieved. You know because no one was hurt. Hope they find new housing.
