    After about a year-long investigation, it was determined that a faulty weld caused this disaster. Nobody in the industry accepts this explanation, given the redundancy of welds. Oh, some patsys say yea, but get real. Our pipeline infrastructure is in worse shape than our power grids, roads, bridges, dams, etc. Oh, and water systems are most-all outdated and in dire need. But for public debt where we have already borrowed against our children's future. Obesity epidemic. Consumerism. Bestiality?

    S T F U you have a problem, buddy, trying to stay focused. Beastiality? What the hell is wrong with you? Gingrich's colon? Are you a mental deficient? What does this have to do with paying people for the loss of their homes? You need help, dude.

    Gingriche's colon was only my s/n and has nothing to do with the topic at ahnd you moron. As for our failing infrasructure, I will debate you into the ground. How stupid the avg. poster has become over the past 25 years. You are an idiot.
