Dear Francesco,

Thanks for the update on this tragic event.  Until ALL buildings are made
safe from collapse, tragedies like this will continue to occur, especially
in areas of relatively low hazard where society does not want to spend
the extra 10 or 15 percent to build safe buildings in the first place.

Colorado is in this category!
