    as others have observed, is that we vastly over-regulate many things that aren't a great source of danger, but then ignore things like this. You would think that oversight of such plants would have been massively expanded after Oklahoma City and even more so after 9/11. Our government seems to be a lot smarter tactically than it is strategically.

    For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus
