Re: “Artists Who Survived Oakland Warehouse Fire Discuss The Tragedy, Those Missing, Need for Safe Underground Spaces

There's a great deal of interesting comments present. However, even at a time like this, the old adage applies: "opinions are like A"& H%&!*...everybody's got one..." Listen, folks, at the end of the day two things are black and white (no pun intended with the particular political climate we are in currently). 1. reality suggests various forms of greed was holistically very much present within the composition of not only this "urban, cultural, underground safe space", but many others where you would not expect to find it, even when humbled by the presence of such pure, creative and minimalist guests. 2. Attorneys hired by victims' families will cast a "wide" net of financial liability, based on black and white "real responsibilty", according to laws we all must live by. The fire was gender, color, religious, cultural, social-blind. So too will be personal injury/death, etc. law, once applied.

Without further ado, and as another old adage dictates: "follow the money.....", cause that's what the lawyers are doing yesterday for the victims' families, as well as the building owners, tenants, city and county officials, etc. running for cover. Only difference in the immediate aforementioned is acquirement and protection of assets.
