    This doesn't surprise me... A Fertilizer plant is not a good place for an explosion.

    If its a very small town does that mean casualties could be minimized? Or does everyone in a 50 mile radius work at that plant?

    Used to drive by West regularly on trips between College Station and Dallas-Fort Worth. Good place to get kolaches.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers
