Fort Steuben Bridge Destroyed

It blowed up real good. Some day you'll have to explain to me why they would blow it up into the river.

That is the BIG GOVERNMENT / UNION mentality at work. First you do millions of dollars worth of environmental and economic impact studies, then you decide that they can only tear part of the structure down by hand. You now blow the rest of it into the Ohio river. The bureaucrats then declare that they only have 24 hrs. to clear the channel for barge traffic. Then they get one week to lift the rest out of the river with cranes. SEEEE---you keep a multitude of bureaucrats busy and you extend the union contracts by weeks if not months. Make one mistake on the timing or required paperwork and they can fine the crap out of those greedy companies as well. MOB planning at it's finest!
