Bad news from Indiana

I was in charge of The Indianapolis News’s coverage of the Indiana State Fair for 10 years (1976-1985) and lived about a mile from the Fairgrounds for about 20 years.
All things considered, I’m a little surprised that there was only five fatalities since the superstructure came down on the standing and seating area in front of the stage.
All events were canceled today, but the 17-day fair resumes on Monday.
I’m still waiting for a list of the dead and injured and hoping nobody I know was involved.

The Fair has expanded to 17 days. There is one more week. Next Sunday is the final day of the 2011 Indiana State Fair. Brenda
