"Do you want to know what sequestration looks like on the ground, and where the real casualties will be found? Look to West, Texas, where an explosion at a fertilizer plant has claimed as many as 40 lives, injured more than 200, leveled entire neighborhoods, and driven residents of the small town from their homes while rescue workers search the wreckage and twisted metal for more dead and injured. Most likely, the explosion itself was caused by an industrial accident involving ammonium nitrate -- a fertilizer, pesticide and powerful explosive. In West, Texas, ammonium nitrate combined with conservative disdain for government yielded devastating results. If sequestration continues, we can expect to see more of the same." (04/19/13)
