Today, Kickstarter offered its response. The communications officer emailed me, and said he would like to share a statement from the CEO with the project creators. The statement said that Kickstarter:

  1. Stood by its decision to fire the organizers, and would be dispatching its lawyers to fight their claims.

  2. Would not voluntarily recognize a union even if the vast majority of workers signed in support of one.

  3. Would not pledge to remain neutral on unionization, and would continue to actively oppose the effort.

I’ve never seen such a shocking explosion, like ever.

Numerous people killed and maimed in the Texas fertilizer plant explosion  so far.   Already it’s off the main news page and getting buried in media coverage.

A tale of two sets of victims?

The Boston attacks killed 3 people, but with political overtones this is the great issue of our time, according to the media and authorities.

The Texas plant explosion killed perhaps 15, but perhaps 40 or more as in other reports.  These people only showed up to work to feed their families.  But this doesn’t seem to be an issue at all.

Is that so?  Is the safety of workers who are incinerated en masse not an issue?  Not to the political class.  Is this company potentially guilty of criminal negligence and manslaughter?  When will we hear something about that?
