More on the river bridge collapse in Minneapolis

This bridge that collapsed in downtown Minneapolis is right by the Metrodome and was on my commuting route in the olden days. It is Minneapolis on both sides of the river, there. I had my own close call on it, some years ago, when a truck in front of me knocked up a piece of road surface that left an indentation in the windshield of my then-Honda, right in front of the spot between my eyes.

Destroying our road system was a priority of ‘Republicans’ here during the years they controlled the state Senate. Most notable was their partially successful attempt to shut down the scientifically designed entrance ramp metering system, on the merit-worthy grounds that it was annoying to ‘Republicans’ to wait their turn to speed recklessly onto an apparently (to the idiotic ‘Republican’ ramp-waiter) unclogged freeway while fingering a beloved handgun in the passenger seat.
