The story about the exploding hash lab tragedy in Rio Dell did a great job in conveying the risks and horrors that accompany such an undertaking ("Rio Dell's Hash Lab Murder Case," Sept. 21). What was not so great was the inclusion of the illustrated "how-to-do" an extraction that accompanied the article.
Despite the "do not try this at home" warning that was included as the lead sentence in the detailed explanation, I cannot help but wonder why anyone thought this was a good way to fill the space? To my way of thinking, perhaps an illustration of how human skin "peels off like a glove" when severe burns occur would better serve the learning curve of those who are considering a future in hash creation.
