About that nightclub in Rhode Island, from seeing inside the place, it
looked to have been not very big to begin with, so they were like asking
for problems by starting pyrotechnics. It's going to be interesting to
see the lawsuits and who's actually responsible for damages.

Subject: A Sad Week...
This has been a sad week...
-- A major snowstorm that has caused 50 deaths (I think it's around 50,
someone correct me if I'm wrong).
-- The stampede in the nightclub in Chicago.
-- The botched heart-lung transplant for Jesica Santillan; as all but
hermits know, she got a second transplant but has suffered irreverible
-- The fire in the nightclub in Rhode Island, caused by an illegal
pyrotechnic show that set fire to the soundproofing material
-- The explosion at the petroleum storage facility in Staten Island.

safeguards, and I'm sure the same could have been said for the deaths
due to the storm, too.
On a slightly more reassuring (!) note, the government has put up a
website for making yourself ready for enemy attack - and there is a
section for those with disabilities:
I'm sure Kyle knows more about this sort of thing than most of us do.
