  •  That seems a Common Texas Sentiment (0+ / 0-)

    On Chris Hayes' show last night there was a segment with a women from town who filed a civil suit against the company and she said that nobody including her is angry at the owners. They all feel terrible for them because they are such nice people and would never want something like this to happen. They mostly believe this is just one of those unavoidable things that happen, although apparently that doesn't mean she doesn't expect the owner's to make her whole financially.

    My take away is that years of indoctrination have led to a passive population that simply doesn't believe that businesses are willing to take large, knowable risks and that accidents like this are indeed preventable.
