    These stories are chilling, but illustrate the importance of learning from history.  Capitalism unchecked leaves many dead bodies by the wayside.  Regulation was born of tragedy, as you so painstakingly document in this series.  I am going back and reading more - the Radium Girls installments were fascinating.

    Well written, and well-researched.  Seems to me these could be compiled into a very sobering, but gripping book.

      I agree.  Keep up this series and you will hardly have to do anything to put it together as a book.  It would be a little short as it stands, but you haven't run out of disasters yet, I'm sure.
