I was guessing Native American Burial Ground or grave yard where they moved the stones but not the bodies.

Recently, in the 2800 block of South Pennsylvania Avenue, Leslie Heitkamp looked out over a neatly-mowed front yard where one would not expect to find lead contamination. She then pointed to uneven terrain in two places.


Know who ELSE has a neatly-mowed yard on Pennsylvania Avenue?

Well, to be fair, Hoffa probably has a pretty high level of lead contamination, too

I wonder where lead comes from...

Came for the graboids from Tremors. Leaving disappointed.

Not to worry. They will surely get through this with great aplomb.

Why do people do this?

I would like, just once, for someone to say "Came for the X, saw nobody else had thought of it yet, so I posted it myself and felt great that I added something of value to the thread!"

If you want graboids in the thread, post some graboids.  Don't expect others to entertain you if you're not going to put up any effort to entertain us.

So, the lead is naturally occurring or left over from some industrial something or other

I suppose those bootstrappy Missourians are going to want some of the socialist government money to help with this, right?

In other instances, mining-related waste known locally as "chat'' has been exposed where foundations and driveways existed before the tornado. Chat contains traces of lead as well as other heavy metals.

I grew up in that part of the country.  Chat's a common construction material there, they mix it with tar and use it as a cheap form of asphalt for paving side roads.  Unless you were planning on eating your driveway, it's pretty harmless.

Mmm and put it into their drinks for a nice fizzy after taste. My friend's mom told us that once, when lead paint was very abundant, that she and her friends would eat little bits of the peeling paint because it would fizz in their mouths.

/no thanks

I see that the bootstrappy Missourian were already very bootstrappy to begin with:


"In the mid-1990s, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launched a massive campaign to rid Joplin of yards contaminated by fallout from a lead smelter in northwest Joplin. More than 2,300 yards in that area of town and other parts of the city were excavated by the EPA and the yards were replaced. "

Dude, I live in Detroit...we have lead everywhere. But the crime-scene really ties the room together (if the cops show up).

Joplin was founded on lead and zinc mining. Doesn't surprise me in the least. The stuff is leftover from mine tailings. There is also a network of tunnels and they stretch all the way past Carthage, some 20 miles.

So they have all these uprooted trees and a lot of lead lying around. All they need is Jack Nance and they can start manufacturing pencils.
