Husband and wife and three kids in a station wagon: The quintessential picture of the American family. Only not in this case, in which the family was literally blown to bits and the few remains of the station wagon so twisted and charred it took police several hours to realize it wasn't a mini-van.The explosion that destroyed a family in Essex Monday night was grotesque. Photos and television footage of the blast's effects made folks gasp. One officer likened it to the Chase train wreck a decade ago -- so horrific you had to see it to believe it, he said.

The people of Essex are distressed. The redistricting plan that the Baltimore County Council approved Monday splits their councilmanic district -- moving 14,000 Essexites from the 5th District into the 7th District. That not only lumps residents of Essex with those in Dundalk, whose community identities are vastly different and competitive, but also, and more important, breaks up what has traditionally been a Democratic stronghold.But what did the people expect? In the last election, the 5th and 7th districts threw over Democratic incumbent Dennis Rasmussen and supported Republican Roger Hayden for county executive.

Parents of Sussex Elementary School students, particularly a vocal minority among them, should calm down. After routine asbestos tests at the Essex school registered 40 times more asbestos material in the air than expected, school officials reacted admirably. Administrators closed the school and found five other sites to send the students.Yet it is understandable that parents would be deeply concerned about the health of their children. Asbestos, an insulation material much used until 10 to 20 years ago, can cause cancer if an individual receives high exposure to the material over a long period of time.
