Don't worry about the fine print!

A train derails in South Carolina. One of its cars is leaking chlorine gas. People are dead and many more are evacuated from their homes.

Jenna, my Blogmama, who lives just outside of the area directly affected but has friends and family who were not, reports:

Some of the people receiving aid checks from Norfolk Southern are concerned about the fine print on the back. I don't blame them. Norfolk's giving them a small check now, to help reimburse them for food and lodging while they're kept away from their homes. The small print on the back says, "Endorsement of this check constitutes a full final and complete release of all claiming going out of the accident incurring at Graniteville on 1-6-2005."
