As reported on Channel 5 News in NYC, there was a natural gas main explosion this evening in the Tacony section of Philadelphia, PA. No doubt, as these systems are in most of the rest of the country, I’m sure the reason for the explosion will be attributed to an antiquated gas main system and/or components. As of the time of the report, it appears that the explosion likely killed at least one individual.
I don’t know how many times I need to suggest such until the governments of our land ever seem to care or listen:
REBUILD THE NATION’S INFRASTRUCTURE!!!!
One has to wonder how many more innocent lives will be lost as a result of our aging and crumbling infrastructure systems before our inept governments become inclined to do anything about the miserable state of our infrastructure systems.
