The whole point is lost if you keep it a secret

So…they don’t look at the engineering reports until after the building has collapsed?

A structural engineering report provided to the Champlain Towers condominium association in 2018 found widespread issues that required extensive repairs “in the near future.”

That’s the one that just pancaked.

Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett told NPR’s Weekend Edition that the engineer report was likely not read until years later. “I’m under the impression that it is something that nobody had seen until yesterday when we started looking back into the records to try to understand if there was anything in the record that would indicate why this building fell down,” he said.


I could be wrong but I thought the whole point of such reports was to see if there is anything wrong, i.e. anything that needs fixing. I didn’t think the point was just to see if there is anything wrong and if there is ignore it.

The whole point of the Doomsday Machine is lost if you keep it a secret, why didn’t you tell the world eh?
