What an idiot. I'm amazed at how nobody has held him accountable for scaring us all when he said 30+ people. Now it makes sense when the police say he was drunk on that horrific night. Why else would someone drive his drunk ass? Why is their a may pro-tem?

Makes you wonder what other industries might potential disaster areas.Under Homeland Security laws companies doe not have to inform first responders what chemicals are on hand, claiming it is a notational security matter and might give potential terrorist information. But I have to wonder how can first responders know how to respond if they don't know what chemicals they face. I note that in the last hazard report the company said the worse that could happen would be a release of Ammonia and would have no danger to public heath. Does anyone feel that they can trust what companies' say about health hazards to the public?

Is it possible there is a salt dome housing dangerous flammable gases near that plant? Read about what is happening in Assumption Parish, Louisiana and check the site listed below.
