yeah, everything WAS fine.  until there's a fire, or until someone gets 
crushed, or until someone gets hurt, and they can't get them out of the 
building or even get to them at all ... jeezus, it boggles my mind  
how utterly stupid people are.  how on earth do you oversell a venue to 
three times it's capacity and not expect the cops to show?  what a 
fucking idiot, please tell me this isn't this freak's normal M.O. ...
