Just to clarify, I don't throw away information about chemical  
production accidents outside of "meth lab" situations; it's just that  
my google search is based on the word "laboratory" and meth labs show  
up a lot because of that. The other thing that shows up a lot is crime  
lab referrals after accidents and fires. I don't pass those along  
either. It's an interesting contrast in the public image of  
"laboratories" though...
