This week has just been horrifying, what with the Boston bombings and the Texas fertilizer plant explosion.
It was announced today that twelve bodies have been recovered from the West, Texas blast site. Sgt. Jason Reyes said that while 200 people have been injured and 50 homes destroyed, the terrible incident is “still being treated as a crime scene.”
While the reason behind the fertilizer plant’s fire and subsequent explosion on Wednesday is still unknown, so is the exact amount of damage done. And though many are still unaccounted for, we do know that five West firefighters, one Dallas firefighter, and four emergency responders were killed.
So sad. Our thoughts are with all in West, Texas.

Oh Jenni, you were taken from us FAR before your time!
The glimmer of hope that Mexican American singer Jenni Rivera survived Sunday's LearJet crash — which claimed the lives of 5 others — has been extinguished.
Her remains were recovered and taken to a Mexican forensics facility Monday evening.
Jenni's brother Lupillo Rivera is traveling to Monterrey so that he can identify Jenni at the Hospital Universitario. He will then retrieve his sister's body and bring it back to Southern California to be buried.
May Jenni, and the loved ones she left behind, find peace after such a devastating tragedy.

A van driver accidentally hit a cat while going down the road.
So she stopped and took the mildly injured cat with her to the vet.
Except the cat wouldn't stay on the seat. It ended up jumping down and climbed up under the dashboard, where it got stuck.
So they called in a mechanic to come in and free the stuck animal.
The mechanic eventually cut his hands while trying to free the cat so one of the staff at the animal control center (with smaller hands) took over and was able to pull the cat out from the dashboard.
The cat is going to be just fine.
The van driver wants to adopt the cat now.
Let's hope the cat forgives the driver for running it over in the first place. LOLz!
