    The bus caught fire at the engine, located in the back.... driver pulled over and evacuation started, and then it blew up three times according to the helicopter crew. They said that there were several on stretchers being carried to ambulances, but looked as if everyone got off the bus before it exploded.

    I don't know how it happened, but it looks like a Cincinnati news channel has the story.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Its finally on the Dallas Morning News' website:


    BREAKING NEWS Northbound Interstate 45 at Mars Road in Wilmer is closed after fire destroyed an intercity passenger bus filled with evacuees from Hurricane Rita. At least one person is dead and about a dozen others are being treated for injuries. Fire officials say an explosion preceded the fire. Northbound traffic is backed up 3 to 4 miles.

    They seem to think the oxygen tanks being used by the elderly passengers played a role in the explosion. Sad very very sad.

    Mabel, you read my mind. How much more can be endured?

    I'm sitting here, "safe" in Chicago, and my heart is just breaking for everyone affected by all this.

    What is going on?
    He's guilty. Get over it.
