    Hmmmm....The hurricane was a natural disaster.

    This is a private business that was benefiting from relaxed regulations and perhaps got sloppy. The building may be gone but the company still exists. Make them pay.

    The plant is owned by Adair Grain Inc. I wonder what kind of insurance they have?

    Now there's some discussion as to whether the company properly informed the city & county they were storing ammonium nitrate at the site, not just anhydrous ammonia, per an earlier hazardous substance submission. That could mean first responders were ignorant of the greater danger when a fire broke out, and it was the responders who appear to have taken the most fatalities.

    The very least they should expect from the congress is a wait of up to 3 months, like those residents of New York and New Jersey.

    What I find most interesting is that the Texas US Senators were in West, Texas before Rick Perry. They made it the morning after and Perry didn't show up till today.

    Boooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!

    and then, after the 3 month wait, an official turn down.

    Seems like Texas should get the same treatment that the Texas Congressional delegation gave to Sandy-ravaged States.
