      If you're thinking of the Hancock Tower, nowhere near "_all_" the
      windows blew out. Less than a hundred (still an embarassing number) of
      the over ten thousand (10,344) windows popped out, due to flexing of the
      building due to wind loads and thermal expansion. The windows were not
      blown out. The flexing was corrected by the installation of an inertial
      damper.

      Just in the interests of factual correctness.
