It is quite common to find ammonium nitrate fertilizer and diesel fuel on
a farm, as well as blasting caps, dynamite, gasoline, soap, and a host of
other things that could be used to make a bomb.  When non-country folks
bring it up, my most common reaction is, "so?" 

Lots of stuff that you find on a farm can be made to hurt lots of other
people.  Guns, rat poison, flammables, explosives ... the list goes on and
on.  Doesn't mean that they are used for such purposes, nor does it mean
that such would ever be anyone's intent.  They are tools, nothing more. 

Next thing you know, they'll be banning selling ammonia and chlorine 
bleach together.  Sheesh.

"Past the wounds of childhood, past the fallen dreams and the broken families,
through the hurt and the loss and the agony only the night ever hears, is a
waiting soul.  Patient, permanent, abundant, it opens its infinite heart and
asks only one thing of you ... 'Remember who it is you really are.'"
