I heard the explosion while working in Enid, OK, if that gives any idea of the loudness of the explosion.

PJ was a great human being who escaped the OKC Bombing being sseverely injured, now having to wear a tube in his throat to protect his lungs from collapsing and losing his oxygen supply.


Shouldn't there be a picture of the building before it was damaged by the explosion? After all, this is the article about the building itself, not the bombing. 18:47, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Agreed. gren グレン 06:24, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
There used to be a pre-bombing photograph of the AP Murrah building on this article, but it looks to've been deleted.Srosenow 98 (talk) 03:37, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

ATF offices?[edit]

So did the building not have ATF offices anymore at the time it was bombed? See EVCM (talk) 06:43, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Oklahoma City federal building redirects here[edit]

When referring to the destroyed building, most sources refer to it specifically as the "Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building". The replacement is just given (from what I can tell) the descriptive title of "Oklahoma City federal building". Should there be a separate article for the new building? At least a section in this article dedicated to the new building? Surely not everyone who types in "Oklahoma City federal building" is looking for the destroyed building?

Artwork in the building.[edit]

Just looking through existing photographs of the artworks listed in this section. Do you really feel it's warranted? For example, the 'sisal textile piece' by Karen Chapnick is literally a door mat hung on the wall. We're talking modern art here of spurious value on insurance policies not great works of art or ancient pieces. Half of the things listed are just blown up photographic prints. They're all replacaeable things. When I see a list of 'artwork lost' I damn well want it to be something precious and irreplaceable enough to be more notable than the lives lost, and I don't think a list of lives lost would be appropriate due to space constraints and would submit that so to should we not include a list of crappy art. Crappy in value / worth not design as that's in the eye of the beholder, one mans bath mat is another mans David due to the prevalence of autism and high income liquidity. But c'mon, let's be serious here. <!//– ☠ ʇdɯ0ɹd ɥsɐq ☠ // user // talk // twitter //–> 04:35, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
