More people died and were injured by lack of oversight of a dangerous fertilizer plant in the middle of a small town than the two bombers at the Boston Marathon.  

So the TVEE talent will chase the sparkly story around Massachusetts asking the hard questions - How did it feel? What were your thoughts?  They will give us all the news that fit to be said; Yes they were Muslim.  Yes they were born in that place.  Yes they came here.  No they are not one of us.

We can't help ourselves this is so much sexier than public safety by regulation - whether it is gun safety or simple common sense to not build a fertilizer plant next to the old folks home.

Sigh.  Our house is not in order.  Our government is on the verge of becoming irrelevant in our lives.  Once that happens it is just luck if you get a job, just luck if you can get medical treatment and just luck if your crazy neighbor doesn't shoot you when he finishes with his family.

But the TVEE will be there. (EOM)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
