Frank Lew's statements were on target.  I agree with Frank much more often
than not. On the other hand, Dennis Wish seems to have his facts crossed.

Readers desiring more details can read  SSC 95-05 - "Status of the
Unreinforced Masonry Building Law" .  Its a longer version which contains all
relevant info generated by the Commission since 1988. For a more recent,
shorter update try SSC 97-03. Its free for view at PEERC's or NCEER's
libraries. Or $15 from the Commission.
