Controlled explosions at New Orleans hotel site send crane crashing onto street

Explosions toppled two cranes Sunday that had loomed precariously for days over a partially collapsed Hard Rock Hotel. The first crane toppled down, landing upright on Rampart Street, while the other could be seen dangling over Canal Street. Officials said they planned for a ’full’ demolition later. On Oct. 12, the under-construction hotel had partially collapsed killing three workers.

Sad about the loss in life. The whole of downtown New Orleans was taped off and zoned by police when I was there so you couldn't get within about 6 blocks of it due to the demo prep.

After hearing about how the corruption of the Gov. lead to the levies breaking during Katrina I cant help but wonder what corners were cut this time. I know it wasnt a gov. project. Just seems odd to me that it just happened to be in the same city.

Accidents like this are becoming more frequent as people continue to hire based on physical characteristics rather than on merit.

I am not too sure it was not a gov't orchestration, er, psy-op. The usual symbols are there.
