The Station nightclub plea deal

WEEI's Dennis and Callahan discussed it at length this morning around  
8:30; they had a father of one of the victims -- apparently he's a  
radio host down there.

Sounded like there were serious allegations of cover-ups and payments  
made to fire marshalls and the like, with a large amount of butt- 
covering going on amongst all the various government officials.

In other words, just another incident in a one-party state with no  
real accountability.
