But ... moving crude by train is much more enviornmentaly friendly and safer than pipeline .. odumbo says so.

Oh Lord .. I hadn't realized how close to a living community that is.

Father, I don't know how to pray ... bless o Lord the survivors and have mercy on those that may get angry at You.

Looks kind of like Philly after the MOVE massacre.

All day Sunday, not a mention in the MSM.

2 people die in SF plane crash and wall to wall coverage.

60 people die in oil train explosion and MSM silence.

We can’t report on any story that makes the king obama look bad. i.e. oil pipeline avoidance

Damn. Looks like photos of Berlin at the end of WW2. From what I’ve read in Canadian media, the bar, the ‘Musi-Café’, was pretty much right at the hypocenter of the explosion.

Lots of small communities are built right up against the tracks all across the country. Here is Grass lake just north of me. The dashed line is a working rail line and virtually every town along it is the same way all the way across the state.

Folks need to think long and hard about moving oil and gas by rail through populated areas.

I’m amazed they haven’t had more coverage of this for the purposes of advocating “green” energy such as wind mills.

Leaving a train of estimated $8,000,000 value unattended seems like a poor carriage of fiduciary responsibility.

Well, it was in Canada. We Americans are famously immune to news of the rest of the world -- even when it's about 10 miles from the border.

We should really get over that. This was horrible.

I read in the WSJ that the oil was from North Dakota and the RR was headquartered in Illinois. The refinery to which the oil was headed was Irving Oil of Canada, in St John New Brunswick.

If this was anything other than an oil train, this would be top headlines across the USA and Canada.
