"Not in our name". It's an insistent protest over here, if you haven't heard the phrase.

Enough said, as I err from the forum topic. There is the fireside lounge or other forums to berate American citizens for our shame.
But I am anti-skyscraper myself. Life and fire design looks for a "reasonable" level of safety. No matter what the emergency, skyscrapers are not designed for any reasonable escape, whereas low-rise buildings are scrutinized to ridiculous levels for egress requirements.
You may have a point on the cover-up and non-enforcement issues. I don't have that information. Any sources?
