Rick Perry boasting about business booming in his state and then shows an explosion, that was featured in Thursday's edition of The Sacramento Bee newspaper, in Sacramento, Calif. Perry sent a letter to the Bee expressing his "disgust and disappointment" and demanding an immediate apology on behalf of the Texas town where 14 people died in a fertilizer plant blast last week. The cartoonist, Jack Ohman, defended his cartoon by saying the lack of government regulations in Texas was a fair topic for criticism.
