Who really cares at this point, it's just a simple fact that something was wrong and as usual the government inspectors that we the tax payers have hire didn't have a clue. Oh well, I guess it's just another case of government as usual. Has anyone ever noticed that we have government employees that are suppose to be watching over things then when something happens another agency steps in and says they'll fix it so it will never happen again., government employees have become such a joke. In all reality this is a non story.

11 people lost their lives. I wonder if their families have gotten over that?
