    Fishgrease, you are my hero.  I still re-read your Fucking Proper Fucking Booming posts.....

    But yeah, I've been involved in several industrial kaplowies here in MA...a very blue state.... among others, a paint factory that blew up (and which somehow killed nobody!!!), a tire retread factory that hemorrhaged  gods-know-what all over the neighborhood when it burned down, and a foundry that blew itself off the map with a dust explosion.  The retread plant was probably arson but the other two were institutional failures that lead to hardware failures.  

    In fact, the paint factory incident prompted a new statewide regulation for permit approvals, inventories, and inspections for business handling certain hazardous materials.

    Irony is the ultimate cop-out way of turning something you didn't mean into something you did...the last refuge of the scoundrel.-- Julian Cope
