Helpful context of the afternoon

BOSTON – A Boston College doctoral student suffered minor injuries at a lab Saturday when a chemical used in making mustard gas and methamphetamine exploded in her hand, a school spokesman said.

No doubt, no doubt -- but do you suppose we're stacking the deck a bit to get the meth-n-mustard-gas angle into the lede? If you stop for some gasoline on the way home from the lab, should the AP point out that gasoline is also used to run your accomplice through the wood chipper?

If she wasn't making meth, that's got no business in the story, let alone the lede.
