"I think literature is best when it's voicing what we would prefer not to talk about."
--Rick Moody


Did You Know . . .?

Tornadoes are invisible; they are just moving air. What you see are the water droplets that form inside the funnel cloud and the dirt and debris picked up from the ground.



On this day in 1944 two liquid gas tanks explode in Cleveland, Ohio, killing 130 people. It took all of the city's firefighters to bring the resulting industrial fire under control. Laboratory workers at the East Ohio Gas Company had spotted white vapor leaking from the large natural gas tank at the company plant near Lake Erie. The circular tank had a diameter of 57 feet and could hold 90 million cubic feet of the highly flammable gas. Ten minutes later, a massive and violent explosion rocked the entire area. Flames went as high as 2,500 feet in the air. Everything in a half-mile vicinity of the explosion was completely destroyed.
