STLToday.com reports that a "small explosion" at a uranium conversion plant in Metropolis, Illinois caused a disturbance this week, not just literally, but politically.

    A small explosion at a uranium conversion plant in Metropolis, Ill., has added fuel to the fire of an ongoing labor dispute.

    No one was injured. No damage was done to the facility. And no dangerous materials were involved, according to the company and regulators.
