    Detroit tar sands explosion and fire on 4/27/13

    If you have been reading all the articles on boston.com, it's possible you may have missed this one:


    http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2013/04/27/reports-of-an-explosion-at-the-marathon-detroit-refinery

    Hard to find on cnn.com as well, if it's even there.  Anyone keeping tabs on this story?  What's up with that?  Thankfully, there appeared to have been no casualties, but with the growing tar sands debate, it seemed to me something worth listing among the headlines.

    There's some debate about the presence of the refinery at the site, owned by Marathon Petroleum.  About 800,000 gallons of heavy crude oil had been dumped into a nearby river back in 2010.  It has yet to be cleaned up.

    Thanks miloblankenstern2 for reposting the link.  I also read another interesting news lately, the Federal Trade Commission is sick of getting grievances from customers about robocalls, which have been a headache for a while. Since several companies aren't ceasing the practice, the FTC has publicized a $50,000 prize for anyone who can determine how to block robocalls
