Goodbye Santika

Last night, a fire and subsequent stampede left 58 people dead and more than 100 injured at the upscale Santika nightclub in Bangkok. Reportedly, the blaze started near a stage where fireworks were being utilized for a performance, last night being the club’s closing night. Ironically, the venue’s Web site had billed the New Year’s Party as “Goodbye Santika.”
