Wow. Wal-mart blew up

It's so wonderful to see that things are still going so well back "home" in the deep mountains of North Carolina. When I first heard about this, it was from a friend who had seen something about Wal-Mart in Sylva on the news. He thought that the place had been leveled by a propane tank that blew up and hurt everyone inside. Well, this wasn't the case, it was just a couple or three of those 1 pound Coleman™ camp stove tanks. Makes a big difference in what you can do with 2 or 3 pounds of propane versus 40 or 60 ounds of propane. Guys, just check all the facts of a story adn report those, don't make any assumptions about things only to have to retract them when people panic.

Oh ye hairy flipping gods...
