It Tolls For These

Christopher Walken is distraught and nearly inconsolable: no more cowbell.

Little remains of the factory of Bevin Brothers Manufacturing Co., which dates its East Hampton (Connecticut) bell manufacturing to 1832. [The facility] was destroyed in a late Saturday night fire. The company makes made [as many as 20 sizes of] sleigh, hand, house, cow, sheep, door and ship’s bells.

The Connecticut Region 3 Incident Management Team said propane tanks in the six-story factory caught fire and exploded, helping spread the blaze.

So, Lunghu is wondering:  just exactly where in China have bell manufacturers been waiting  –and planning–  for this very day?
