As much as a catastrophe as it was this is going way beyond normality. Yes it completly sucks that so many people died but can they sue the US government also. Everybody and their brothers have been sued already so you might as well sue the Gov. Blame the band, the manager, the radio station, the bar, the town and the state. How about blaming the people for going?

Lawyers will get most of it, the remaining $400 will be split between the 300+ people who went to the show.

No one sued the band member's parents yet, I'm sure that is coming soon.

Seriously, enough is enough.... can anyone say greedy. Seems to me like these people are starting to exploit the deaths of their "loved ones" to their own benefit. How sad, but how typical in this country.

Blame George Bush - somehow it's his fault, a good lawyer will figure how to blame W, get several million more while giving the clients a mere few thousand more to split.

By the time this is over, the lawyers will have paid for their kids' college, houses cars, etc... and the victims will be able to super-size their meals at McDonalds!
