    One of the things that came about as a result of the Cocoanut Grove fire was that nightclubs came to be classified as "places of public assembly", which placed them under a stricter fire code.  And the questions that immediately pops into your mind is, "They weren't classified that way already?  Isn't that a no-brainer???"
