Given all the possible scenarios which might explain the booms and/or explosions, there does seem to be one common denominator: The base really dropped the ball on this one. They had an absolute responsibility to warn people living near the base about the noises and they failed miserably. This is what you call a public relations fuck up to the tenth degree. Someone suggested that the base commander went AWOL. Well, there's no doubt that someone at the base is more than a little out to lunch!

MojaveMike: Someone definitely screwed the pooch on this one. Not sure if there will be an apology issued or if the idiot responsible for the incident will be held accountable, but its scary to think that such incompetent numbskulls are running things on the base!

Still no word on what it actually was, only speculation?
Make Trona great again!

CrustyOldFart: Plenty of people like to imply that you lack patriotism if you complain, but a little courtesy isn't too much to ask IMHO.

So far I haven't heard an official explanation for the sonic booms back a few weeks ago. Not sure who the boneheads are at the base who can't be bothered to provide warning to the public, but more than a few people (mostly children and the elderly) were more than a little scared. You'd think that the dipsticks at the base might be just a little more considerate! Must make them feel like big men to scare little children and old people!
