    Deal is, it's a pretty small town, scattered rural environment. Everybody knows everybody, and everybody works or knows someone who works at the plants. The dead man was a Russellville resident. So were the injured and most of the rest of the work crew who got to watch the crane drop the 500-ton stator through what's supposed to be at least 20 feet of reinforced concrete slab strong enough to withstand a 6 point earthquake.

    Heh. Somebody probably saved a bundle by cheating on those specific specs when they built the place.
