    14 dead and an estimated 100 million in damage so far. The only thing the fertilizer plant owner can do at this point is to kill himself.

    People are still helping people and having fundraisers and such. Pretty soon they'll start getting pissed. I wouldn't want to be that guy. He lives right in West.

    As far away as he was, it blew out his windshield and dented one side of his truck.

    It's a good thing that Texas is such a good for business, anti regulation state.

    Oh, they're already hinting that this company violated a ton of regulations. It's gonna get real ugly.

    Company will declare bankruptcy, and most of his assets will be liquidated. But he'll still have a nice house and comfortable life.
