    from the nuns in Ohio in 1958 ... every time that there was a fire drill. That sounds like I'm making a joke: I am not. I have always been very cautious about fire and easy access to an exit just about anywhere I am. I have taught this to my daughter also. Movies, concerts, meeting halls, hotels, anywhere where I am -- I look for the easy way out. Again, I am not making a joke. Plus, now that I live in California, I want to be aware of where I am because of earthquakes.

    Thanks for this bit of history that may actually save someone's life.

    The Our Lady of the Angels School fire in Chicago in 1958 was an excellent example of that

    Especially about inward opening exterior doors.
