There was a lot written about the Boston Bombings,
and rightly so ...

but let us be fair and also highlight here,
the other very recent dreadful >

BANGLADESH TRAGEDY..

Up to 300 people lost their lives,
many more injured and missing..

Apparently days before it was pointed out
that cracks which had appeared in the walls
would indicate the building wasn't safe..

but the 'powers that be' took no action..
and it was 'business as usual'..
until the tragic circumstances caught up
with them... now TWO have been arrested
because they deemed the factory safe when it wasn't..

It is also a time when the slave labour aspect of these workers, is being looked into
more closely;

people who are very malnourished and work
long hours every the pittance
of equivalent of> 40 Dollars a MONTH!!!!!!

It is reported that now over 377 folks
have died in this tragedy...
.. many more unaccounted for..

Two -said owners- of the factories have been arrested.

NOT ONE even replied to this'tragedy'-
outlined on this thread -

in 'The Boston Bombings' thread ..
several replies, incl me.

Begs the question

'Are some people seen .. as

'being more important
than others'?

Ferret is a lazy bum that wants to force others to work for his living and have the government hold his hand from the cradle to the grave. In other words, a useless POS.....
