"I went across the street to the Mardi Gras Champagne Room, where we were having a drink, and the building where I work blew up," she said.

She said she watched her livelihood go up before her eyes.



Isn't that a stripper's job?

"The building was flattened, and the remains of the club look like a huge cavity"

That's what she said.

They must have taken lessons from that 'furnace malfunction'. I hear from my friends in Springfield that the Strippers were told they had 20 minutes to get out, naked or not.

There's video of the actual explosion on this link.

I wonder if it turns out to be the same thing that happened in Indianapolis and the owners blew up the building for the insurance money?

I know it can be pretty intense if it's been 4 or 5 days, but jeez...

Am I the only one who thinks it's awesome, potentially convenient, and just slightly wrong that there's a day care next door?

The official sounding guy (mayor?) doing the news conference on WWLP called it the "entertainment" district.

I guess this is why the rest of New England seems to look at Springfield with derision.

Holyoke is even shiattier than Springfield. I do enjoy Amherst & Northampton, however.

Is this the suspiciously named Megan LaBombard?

There's something a bit off-kilter about her. I suspect foul play.

"I feel lucky we got out," Debbie said. She said all her work clothes were lost.

No loss of life, but moderate to severe loss of thong.

I used to pass through Springfield all the time in the early 90's... the pictures after the explosion actually look exactly as I remember the town.

Is the pic sideways so that she's recognizable to clients?

The Day Care center next door was also damaged. Most places at least have the pretense to zone adult businesses further away than next door.

My favorite from the article: ...

The Square One day care next door was heavily damaged.

So convenient: drop off your kid, go next door to work and drop off your clothes

This wasn't a gas explosion. The experts here have taught me well. You can tell by the pixels that is was C4.

FTA: "It rocked us so hard the windows smashed. It felt like an earthquake or a large explosion."

So, it rocked you like an earthquake or other natural disaster?

I might have compared it to a hurricane, myself.

Conveniently the daycare is also the local FEDA* office.

It's a bit of a mystery, yes. But if you look at the clues, you can figure it out.

These local news sites really should still put the state in the first line. How hard is it really to type two extra letters?

Springfield had tons of awesome, if you wind back the clock about 80 years. Rolls Royce had their only American-approved coachbuilders in Springfield, and Indian motorcycles were based there as well.

Fast-forward to now, and Springfield is the kind of place you end up if you decide Worcester is too highbrow, or if the ceaseless reggaton has pushed you out of Holyoke.

If there were a God enacting judgement, he may want to find the place with more immoral people. Maybe a place full of corruption.

Then where are the strippers supposed to take their kids before their shift starts? I mean really, I thought I would open a line of day cares, but someone already beat me too it.

Worthington Street is a true cancer on the city, except for the fact it has one of the oldest poolhalls in North America as a tenant.
