""A lawyer for the tow-truck victims was leery of the utility's reassurances that no similar danger lurked. "Are we supposed to take Con Ed's word for it?" attorney Kenneth Thompson said.""::
Well, no, I guess you could crawl through the steam pipes yourself and check things out. As a matter of fact, being a lawyer, I would encourage you to do just that.

For the love of Pete, how can a small clump create such a huge blast?
