    That's really bad. You can't go out and enjoy yourself these days without something going awfully wrong.

    Just caught it on the weather channel and the death toll is now up to 5. They're going to close the fair for a day, as well as having a memorial service when it does reopen. Pretty sad.

    when i first heard about this i was thinking some little tiny wooden type stage, but then thought well 5 ppl died and saw the video, and for a stage like that to collapse, someone or some people did not assemble it correctly.

    it looks like the wind got it too, so who knows.

    I was up to see the news interrupt the show that was on last night. I'm glad the band wasn't onstage yet.
