So I guess there’s a stockpile of nerve agents in Richmond, Kentucky

Somehow, I didn’t know that the Blue Grass Army Depot in Madison County is storing

two nerve agents: GB, better known as Sarin, and VX. Both are contained in projectiles and rockets. It also stores mustard agent in projectiles.

Nor did I know that

According to an assessment prepared for Congress, Madison’s stockpile will pose the highest risk for terrorism in the nation two years from now because incineration will have been completed at other sites. It used area populations and the nature of the weapons stored at each site to calculate the risks.

That’s just great, terrorist bait in my family’s backyard…

(I’m supremely unsurprised at the left-leaning Herald-Leader‘s transparent attempts to blame this on the president, but it’s still annoying.)
