    West (last I saw a figure injuries were 300) greater than in Boston but the property damage, loss of home, and work places  is huge in West relative to Boston.

    And West in varying degrees is happening much more frequently than Boston.

    I've posted this a couple of times already but will put it up again.  I have created a petition on the SH site.

    Description
    "The creation of a nation wide fund to help those like the victims in Boston and others who have suffered catastrophic injuries from accidents and violence that are so severe their financial future both from the burden of the cost medical care and as a wage earner and lives as non dependent citizens are effectively made extremely improbable."

    "Issues: Disabilities, Homeland Security and Disaster Relief, Human Rights"

    I make a few points and comparisons and suggest a small tax on liquor and DWI tickets as a start to finance a program.

    Please take a look if you like the concept.  And pass it along if you like the idea.
