Another explosion, this time near Detroit:

    DETROIT (WWJ) – BREAKING – There has been an explosion at the Marathon Detroit Refinery and a mandatory evacuation order is in effect for the area just off of Schafer from Ropp down to Dix and all the way down to Outer Drive per Melvindale police.

    Reports of the explosion came in from several listeners to WWJ Newsradio 950 just before 6 p.m. and it appears that one of the tankers on the site may have exploded.

    Marathon Detroit Refinery told WWJ that they were trying to get the situation under control but could not comment further.

The controversial site is a major destination for tar sands oil, and is in Michigan's single most polluted zip code:
So I went to Google News to check it out
Not a damn thing!
Why - Cause it's just a little more pollution - not to worry about - nothing of concern - - - - - 

So I had to go searching again on Google for webpages OTHER THAN THE NEWS!
Found this on Moral Low Ground
A massive explosion has been reported at a tar sands oil refinery in Detroit, Michigan on Saturday afternoon, prompting a mandatory evacuation order for parts of a nearby city.

CBS Detroit reports that the blast occurred at the Marathon Detroit Refinery on South Fort Street. A thick cloud of black smoke rose into the clear afternoon sky and was visible for miles around

An evacuation order is in effect for parts of the neighboring suburb of Melvindale.

Each day, the Marathon Detroit Refinery processes more than 100,000 barrels of heavy crude oil from Canadian tar sands. In June 2010, the Free Press reported that the refinery is located in Michigan’s most heavily polluted zip code.
That's it - two stories.
What I found was these two stories - and these were the only two internet stories repeated over and over and over again – TWO - cause there was nothing else out there.

I wonder how many people  got a bigger paycheck for NOT REPORTING this expolsion.

Suck this crap from the explosion into your lungs 
Go ahead - take a big 'ol inhale
– then give me a lecture about smoking.
