    I couldn t help but be incredulous about a molasses flood I was doing research into what books I wanted to read for my Winter 2013 Disaster Read, which I originally intended to be about natural disasters, but quickly morphed into disasters in general, and I stumbled across this book Lo and behold a week la

    This historical event is yet another example of the truthiness of Hanlon s Razor Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity In this case, a cowardly middle manager with no relevant experience cuts corners to please his clueless bosses, constructing a huge, dangerous, leaky tower for mo

    I liked, but not loved, this accessibly written book I had no idea that there had been such an event, and the thought of it was pretty horrific For all neo cons, this is what happens when industry and corporations are left to regulate themselves There is a reason for inspections and oversight of big business To think of the c

    Did you ever hear of the great molasses flood in Boston I grew up hearing about this event probably because it took place in and around Boston s North End, and we had ties to and visited the North End frequently But even I took the reality of this event with a grain of salt But it actually happened.

    Anyone who had parents who grew up in Boston heard the story passed down about the great Molasses Flood It was usually told in an offhand manner, ending with on a hot day you can still smell the molasses This is the whole story, and there isn t anything offhand about it A very good piece of social, as well as labor history I, of course, ended up

    I was blown away by this, how could something this huge have happened and I didn t know It also made me wish I knew all history, every single interesting event that ever happened So, in 1919, there was a gigantic molasses flood in Boston, which is interesting enough Add in the political climate of the times, with anarchists in every doorway, a changing Federal climate, corpo

    This book was great a nonfiction re the Great Molasses Spill in the North End in 1919 I had heard of the disaster in which 21 people lost their lives, hundreds were injured and multiple structures destroyed But, I had absolutely NO IDEA of the events tied in with the eventlike Sacco Vanzetti and the anarchist movement, World War I, the rum slavery molasses triangle trade Having connec

    I absolutely loved this book What struck me most was the fact that Stephen Puleo gave the molasses flood a number of human faces The majority of the book is narrative by and about the people involved in the flood The rest of the book is a chronicle of the time period A huge part of this book is about showing the world of the mid 1910s and into the twenties, spanning the anarchist and labor move
