Alan Sullivan says he wouldn’t be surprised to see more Twin Cities bridges crumbling:
They use far too much road salt during the long Minnesota winters: it rots out the cars, and eventually even steel girders give way. It’s time for local authorities to cut back the chemicals and rely more on old-fashioned sand.
We don’t have this problem in Oklahoma: we simply cheap out on the actual construction.
Meanwhile, I picked up this bulletin from a MySpace friend:
No one laugh at me any more about going over bridges and being afraid.
No giggles here.
