Hard Rock Hotel in New Orleans collapse...

RIP to the dead and a speedy recovery to the wounded.

We were down that way a month ago.

It's New Orleans.
What do you expect?
You can pay $100,000 to Quality Control to make sure the concrete is up to specifications before pulling the forms,
or you can pay the inspectors $100 to say everything is up to specification,
then pull the forms.
Don't get me started.
But it is not unique to New Orleans. Las Vegas still holds the record:
