Look: the thing that happened in Minneapolis was terrible, but unlikely. There are thousands of bridges around the country. While we shouldn’t fail to inspect bridges (and we have been inspecting them) we can’t expect things like this never to happen. It’s just a part of life… particularly government run life. So relax.
Update note: (If the State didn’t spend so much on unnecessary transportation projects like the Global Transpark, porkbarrel construction, and fourlaning eastern NC, we wouldn’t have problems keeping bridges in good repair. Oh, and they can keep their mits out of the HTF, too.)
