A moment of silence please. Not for Michael Jackson. Not for Farrah Fawcett, or Billy Mays, or Robert McNamara. No, this is far worse, a beloved piece of the American landscape has suffered a terrible blow.
The Slim Jim plant … the ONLY Slim Jim plant … has exploded.
It may take months to recover, but we’ll get through this.
NB: My condolences to the families of the 3 heroes that perished in the incident.
