    If that was true at one time, it's easy to see why it made sense to change the policy.

    The vast majority of people hurt by this disaster had nothing to do with the "making" of the man made disaster and share no blame. These folks are more deserving of assistance than many of those who are affected by natural disasters - e.g. the people who choose to build houses on the edges of cliffs in Malibu

    And as a minor detail, the cause of the explosion has not yet been determined. I'm still checking every few days to see if there is an update on Bryce Reed, the EMT who was indicted for being in possession of bomb-making materials. Former West EMT Reed will undergo mental health evaluation - WacoTrib.com: West
