    Since you posted no link, I have no idea what you're talking about. I do know that I have no desire to run crane, they're seriously freaky. I spent all day Thursday in various cranes, I really don't want to make that a fulltime gig, but I can run crane if need be.

    Yea my sister is in NY wright now sight seeing and club hopping and she said she didn't hear anything but the city was talking like crazy. Everyone thought it was 9/11 again. Luckily she is okay and was about 5 streets away from where it happened. I pray for those who lost their lives and their families.

    That rotten company had like 13 citations already and the tower crane sliced right through a low rise building.

    They said those 13 citations are a normal amount for a size job like that one. They also said those citations could be anything like very small issues. They also just inspected the crane the day before and said all was good and it was in perfected running order. Those inspectors better hope they don't find a issue with the crane that could have been found the day before.
