Courtney Spradlin of the Log Cabin Democrat in Conway has posted on Twitter the photos above of a house  coming down at 32 N. Starlite in the Mayflower subdivision fouled by the burst ExxonMobil pipeline carrying Canadian tar sands. I'm surprised Tiny Tim Griffin didn't get in the shot with a prepared statement on his newfound interest in accountability for Big Oil. He's too busy working on either a) keeping the government shut down or b) another tar sand pipeline through Nebraska. Not to worry: the daily newspaper will have its obligatory self-serving Griffin quote tomorrow. 

Two houses are coming down today; negotiations continue on what's to be done about other houses in the subdivision. Even Exxon says it's the only way in the case of these two houses to be sure the cleanup is complete near ground zero of the spill.

The first house, at 32 North Starlite, was acquired by Mobil Pipeline Co. on Aug. 26 for $151,000, according to assessor's records. Charles Williams bought the house in 2009 for $130,000. It was gone in an hour or so. The second house, at 36 N. Starlite, was purchased Aug. 21 by Mobile Pipeline for $177,000. It had been bought in April 2012 for $180,000 by Daneshia Roberts-Modica and Jose Modica, again all according to assessor records.
