Depressing News Briefs

  • Hood County oil well explosion injures at least six this afternoon. As many as three unaccounted for.
  • Edit: Three confirmed dead. Wow.
  • Edit @ 4:01: Oh, no. Ten are still missing!!!!
  • Edit @ 4:27: Some are describing this as "pipeline rupture."
  • Edit @ 4:48: Now we're back to three missing.
  • Edit @ 6:09: Absolutely incredible -- there are no confirmed deaths after all. The rush to "be first" is killing journalism. CNN, Yahoo, the Dallas Morning News, all fed off unconfirmed reports. It even made the NBC Evening News.
  • Seven American soldiers killed in Afganistan.
  • 55 found dead in Mexico.
Sheesh.

And the oil spill is now bigger than florida.No 100% gaurantee that any 100% solution will be found...if it takes two months for relief well and they are only containing 1/3 of it now...do the math.

So is it Hood County or Johnson County......guess I'll have to search the internet for the facts, since I'm not getting them here or on Channel 5 news.......

See people, just one more reason we don't want Oncor's high voltage power lines coming through either the stinky armpit of Texas, which is Wise County, nor up here in Gawd's Country.....I applaud both the Montague County and the Wise County Commissioner's Courts for proclaiming their stand against such raping of our landscapes. Now, if you want to drill an oil or gas well or put in a pipeline, or toxic injection well, we'll usually just turn our collective heads the other way, most of the time.

That couldn't be the double fake rose of TXSheehan. She wasn't bashing Bush or Cheney.

It would take a dumb ass to drill in a right of way.What did they think the cleared lane was for?It is very easy to see in the helicopter view.Surely dig test was notified.It looks like a good place for a lawer den.They will have to buy index fingers by the dozen before they clear this up.

Oncor will butcher your trees if their lines are near your property. There should be a law against them butchering trees!
