The stupidity of some construction decisions and practices is dumb-founding.

I lived in St. Louis for a time and studied at two seminaries there (with library privileges at three others, which I greatly miss). One high-rise near where I lived did not have girders in the top five floors. It was known to be unsafe, and high winds were a problem. But, it came to light after the building was completed. It was allowed to stand. Those who built it that way, and those who let it stand, will have blood on their hands if it results in deaths.

There's an interesting in depth article on the BBC news site which shows how lovely the flats were inside. Until I read the article I imagined poverty.

Unskilled and unlicensed people signing off building work. Yup, that about sums it up.
