    West, Texas disaster was a repeat of a larger one

    The following title will find an account of another disaster, and is located in Wikipedia under the following title::

    “Texas City Disaster”

    So far, at least from this end, no one either remembers or is aware of this account, which has many similarities to what took place yesterday in West, Texas. This disaster, by far, was MUCH larger than in West, Texas, although it is being reported as the largest of its kind. You would think that learning would have taken place that should have kept the fertilizer facility in West, Texas at a safe distance from town.

    But as the saying goes: "Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it." This was said by Edmund Burke who was a British Statesman and Philosopher and is generally viewed as the philosophical founder of modern political conservatism.

    Admittedly this is a bit off topic for this message board, but the widespread ignorance of and failure to mention this event seemed to over-rule not mentioning it. But when it comes to industrial accidents it could be considered relevant since mining is a also very dangerous business.
