Beer Keg and Fires Don't Mix
Just when I thought I'd seen it all, this happens:
1 dead in blast at New Milford party
By Nanci G. Hutson and John Pirro
NEW MILFORD -- A 22-year-old local man was killed and seven others injured early Sunday morning in an explosion that erupted after a partygoer at a pig roast tossed a beer keg into a fire barrel.
Witnesses said the 3:13 a.m. explosion that killed Sean Caselli reverberated as far as a mile or more away from the Aspetuck Ridge Road festivities.
"It was an unbelievable explosion,'' said New Milford High School hockey coach and neighbor Robert Greco, a physician's assistant who rushed to the scene to offer assistance. "It rattled the street.''
Caselli, who lived with his family on North Valley Road about a mile away, died after being struck by a piece of flying metal in the neck, police said.
Police said the other victims suffered burns and shrapnel wounds that were not life-threatening. They were taken to New Milford and Danbury hospitals. Police would not release their identities.
The party, an annual barbecue and pig roast, was held by Matt Johnson, the operator of a local tree service and the son of former Board of Education chairwoman Alexandra Thomas and her husband, Terry, who own a wilderness camp. Neighbors said Johnson has held similar gatherings in the past, and none have caused a problem. The barbecue was held in a rural area behind the house.

Some people amaze me...
But my question is, did they catch the guy who made this genious move? It didn't say anything about him in the article...Calm Like A Bomb...

I don't see what's so surprising about it. They've been saying for years that alcohol kills.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

now see.. if they were smokin weed they would be too lazy to do thishttp://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion
