Why The Florida Condo Collapsed

Spoiler alert: it was Jimmy Carter

The Hartford Civic Center collapsed just 6 hours after almost 5,000 fans watched a basketball game (1978).
The Florida condo in question; Surfside FL, June 24.
Those spikes in the 1970s made time the enemy of any project.
Jimmy fiddled while prime rose above 20%.
I’m not sure this campaign slogan is accurate.
Warning: Jimmy Carter is still alive.
