A very sad tragedy. I'm afraid that with inadequate infrastructure this is going to happen again. Bangladesh is known for it's poor, but there is a working class and of course the very wealthy. Any guesses as to who pays the taxes that builds the infrastructure?

The undue influence of those with money equating to power is indeed a world-wide issue Kit...wish I had a green star I could send you but I'm still told it is too soon!
