Texas isn't in the US. We donated it to Mexico.

It was a "accident". (even though the company ignored warnings from EPA and OSHA)
All of this coverage of the Boston Bombings is going to promote terrorism. Now they will know that killing three people will cost the USA over 300 million dollars and captivate the entire nation.
They talked about the Texas explosion during the Braves game. 'Merica
Did you see the explosion of the dad and daughter cell phone....wow
The whole town wasn't wiped out first off, not sure if you were being serious or just over stating for story sake. It was on every major news site/station up until the Boston bombers did their MIT shooting and Grand theft auto chase. That's when coverage left West and headed East.
The entire town is gone

From Yahoo! News: By Joshua Schneyer, Ryan McNeill and Janet Roberts NEW YORK (Reuters) - The fertilizer plant that exploded on Wednesday, obliterating part of a small Texas town and killing at least 14 people, had last year been storing 1,350 times the amount of ammonium nitrate that would normally trigger safety oversight by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). ...
That is the entire town... asshat.
It's not. Did you even look at the pics???
You're an idiot. A very insensitive one at that. 14 people were killed, the majority of which were first responders and about 50 homes were damaged. Again, not the entire town of 3000 people.
Did nothing Mack Brown hasn't already done.
