Fertilizer plant exploded near Waco Texas

5-15 people might be dead. Not sure why they didn't say "shiet, this is a fertilizer plant, clear out the city"

plant is only 1000 miles away from the business district and homes.

how terrible is your life to live ~1000 ft from a fertilizer plant?

How terrible is it that people knew that and let it happen?


Remember, Texans hate that daggum government intrusion. That extends to zoning, too, unfortunately.

Don't lump me with them. I'm far more moderate. Of course, they would all call that "flaming liberal."
