Claptrap bridge buys the farm
I can't believe that bridge! Twin towers all over again. One local failure propagates in both directions to take the entire bridge, just like an earthquake! Good thing that old steel yields and stretches so much, so that the deck was let down gently enough to save lives. I'll bet they had a lot of little earthquakes, before this M8! I'll bet the bridge janitors will say it will never happen again! They should get together with the Japanese. Oh well, and I thought nothing ever happens when I'm on vacation.
