Coal sludge deluges homes

300 million gallon of toxic coal sludge
broke through a dam and has deluged hundreds of acres of land near Knoxville, Tennessee. Unlike flood waters, which eventually recede, it looks like much of this highly toxic glop will remain.

Naturally, BushCo officials are doing nothing except exhibiting their usual incompetence by not helping residents and saying that while the sludge might contain highly toxic materials that it isn’t toxic.

It will be so nice to have rational adults in charge of the federal government come January 20.
