Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he's "disgusted" by a California newspaper cartoon depicting him boasting about booming business in the Lone Star State.
The next frame depicts the West, Texas plant explosion.
Perry said he wants an apology from the Sacramento Bee on behalf of the town, which suffered a huge loss of life in the April 17 fertilizer plant explosion.
Ten of the 14 people killed were first responders.
In a letter to the Bee's editor, the four-term Republican Governor said it "was with extreme disgust and disappointment I viewed your recent cartoon."
