Re: “Great Ball of Fire,” November 13

Michael Miner’s profile of John White and his photos of the recent gas explosion and fire was quite interesting and informative. However, I was rather surprised that he made no mention of what is, to me at least, the single most striking aspect of the photo that you published. That is–it bears a most shocking and eerie resemblance to the famous Vietnam napalm-attack photo (except that in this case, of course, the frightened escapees are all fully clothed).
