A train de-railed today just south of louisville kentucky, sparking a hugh fire and shutting down part of the interstate 25. Authorities were unable to get close to the train due to the fact that there could be another explosion, the train was carrying butadiene which poses the risk of explosion if this was to explode people in the area would have irritation to the eyes,nose and it would also damage the nervous system. My question to yourselfs is do you think there should be more care taken to make sure that things like this does not happen, there is a school near there and the children had to be evacuated. I think that when something like this happens it must open peoples eyes and to take more care.

Oh dear, this is distressing to hear. Yes, care must be given, but there is always this issue of money. Everything costs too much for this, and too much for that. Until a real horrible nightmare happens, then the money is used. So sad,isn't it?

Yeah, it is sad and i know it is down to cost. With America paying so much to help out in Iraq you think they could afford to help in there own country. Take New Orleans for example that was a joke what Bush did.

Do not get me started, or any other American on Bush. What a disgrace he is to our country.
