Blow Us All To Kingdom Come

When I was a kid I thought there's no place 
more dangerous than a gas station.

Thousands of them all over the country
time bombs.

The littlest thing would do it.
You'd forget, light a cigarette. Boom.

Frank (his red patch said) laid it on the line.
"Don't bang your skates on the car," he warned.
"Might set off a spark."


Now there's nuclear power plants.
