    It’s hard to walk a line between too much government oversight (everyone loves to hate big gov’t) and too little. Seems like we’re currently on the too little side, and if money isn’t dedicated to field inspectors (preferably who know what they’re doing), then we can expect more of the same. Luck held this time and the two schools that adjoined the plant were not occupied. Will it take an incident with dead children to spur movement??

    Why do we have OSHA if they don’t have the resources to police these industries/factories? And why do factories using dangerous materials and processes need to be “policed?” I’d suggest the city, state, and anyone else involved in the cleanup sue the company for costs. Further, the people involved, dead and alive, certainly are entitled to repatriation. This was a deliberate act by a company to ignore the safety of the people and environment in which it operates. Maybe these types of companies should be required to post high bonds before being allowed to operate. That would reduce their ignoring of safety factors, I’m sure. Only money talks, especially in our good old USA.
