The Associated Press reported on Saturday that Hungary’s red sludge reservoir is “very likely” to collapse, dumping another 90 million gallons of the goo into the Hungarian countryside – for a grand total of 280 million goo-gallons, or 80 million more than BP’s Gulf goo-boo.
According to the AP, Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban said “a catastrophe like this has never happened before anywhere in the world.”
All due respect to Hungary, where seven people have died in the red sludge surge, but the Boston Molasses Disaster of 1919 took 21 lives, even though only 2.5 million gallons flowed through the North End.
I guess it all depends on how you hold it up to the light.
