Not to be a sick bastard, but did anyone else have "Disco Inferno" pop into their heads as well?

This is Mike "The Doctor" Gonsalves who died in the Station Fire. He was the best damn metal DJ in the Northeast. He's spinning righteous metal for the headbanger kids on the other side.

Most of the exits were locked shut. Geez did these guys not learn ANYTHING? Oh boo hoo a couple of people sneak in. THe place was friggen packed, you wouldn't have lost much.

Locked doors + over crowding + flair = disaster

Peter Gibbons: Doesn't it bother you that you have to get up in the morning and you have to put on a bunch of pieces of flair?
Joanna: Yeah, but I'm not about to go in and start taking money from the register.
Peter Gibbons: Well, maybe you should. You know, the Nazis had pieces of flair that they made the Jews wear.

The article is poorly written, the doors were locked shut at the market in Asuncion where 300 people died this past August.

/wonders why so many people want to believe an Argentine nightclub owner would do something like that.

How come every time I read a story like this, it says people died "scrambling for emergency exits"? Isn't that a good hint that maybe these kinds of places should rethink what they consider to be effective "emergency exits"?
