Bombs in Our Backyards

Michael Brune

The hospitals prepared for an influx of wounded that never came. People either escaped or they died. The youngest victim was four years old; the oldest was 93. In all, 47 people died on the night of July 6, 2013, when an out-of-control oil train carrying Bakken crude oil derailed in the small Quebec town of Lac-Mégantic, 22 miles from the U.S. border.

Watched a "bomb" train go by this morning in North Idaho, straight from North Dakota. Noticed that a number of the tanker cars showed serious rust issues, one was openly leaking from an apparent crack in the top.Class action suits should be filed by communities at risk, because $$ is the only language those crooks speak.
