Hey Pudding,

If I were to drive into downtown, do you know of any public parking areas within walking distance of 430 West Vine Street, Lexington, KY 40507?

1. If that were factually correct, and it's not,  it overlooks a lot of details of the incident pertinent to the collapse involving the design and construction of the buildings along with the impact.

2.  Again it's not factually correct. Two examples I can think of off the top of my head. McCormick Place in Chicago had an exhibition hall structurally composed of fire protected steel that collapsed in a 1960s fire.  The sight and sound theater in Pennsylvania was of similar construction and collapsed due to fire in1997.  Structurally they both had a lot in common with the twin towers using load transferring trusses to provide large unobstructed spaces, which is the primary weakness in all of them.

Here's Scott Grainger. He's a fire protection/forensic engineer and he disagrees with you.


MIT Professor Thomas Eagar has cited the example of the McCormick Place Collapse as an example of the collapse of a steel-framed building induced by fire. However, the McCormick collapse involved only the building's roof, and the structure was not comparable to any part of WTC 1, 2, or 7.

A reviewer of a draft paper by Jones ( Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Collapse?) cited the Sampoong department store collapse to counter Jones' claim that the symmetry of the WTC collapses indicated demolition. However, available reports and photographs do not support the reviewer's claim that the collapse was symmetric, nor would the symmetry of the collapse of the five-story structure be relevant to the symmetry of the collapse of a skyscraper such as Building 7.

Other critics of Jones have cited the L'Ambiance Plaza building collapse, calling it a total progressive collapse. However, the L'Ambiance Plaza was under construction and apparently employed deficient temporary structures. Deficiencies in the incident's investigation prevent the accurate characterization of it as a progressive collapse.

Other skyscraper fires that raged for hours, but did not collapse.

It's hard to take ANYTHING from the DOJ seriously. Let alone an investigation from them as long as Holder is in charge.

With Eric Holder in charge, how many times has he botched things or flat out ignored obvious crimes in favor of the black perpetrators?

Take for example, the New Black Panthers intimidating voters at polling places. It was caught on video, police reports were filed and yet, Holder says that "no laws were broken"????  Even if one single voter was intimidated by their presence, then a crime has been committed.

What the NBPP did was clearly in violation of Federal Election Law and a civil rights violation but, because the perps were black, no charges were ever filed and no case was taken to court. Even the liberal rag known as the Huffington Post reported on this.... To make matters worse, they did it again back in 2010 during the midterms.

Because of Holder's blatant defiance to enforce the law and press charges against these hoodlums, several DOJ attorneys for the enforcement of civil rights have resigned in protest.

So you see. Some of us do NOT take anything the DOJ says with any validity. Their selective prosecution has rendered them worthless and their credibility is trashed.
