19th Bridge Collapse or Failure

Since 1990, by my best count, 19 major bridge collapses have occurred in the USA, the majority of which occurred since 2000. Our infrastructure is falling apart and Congress and our state governments are playing the part of Nero and sitting idly by while our country falls apart at the seams. This is what happens when social programs get more funding than roads.

But no worries, state officials say there is no environmental problem with a train-car of highly toxic vinyl chloride spilling into a local river. Nothing to see here, move along.

19 bridges in 32 years, thats about one every 1.6 years. So no worries, I doubt YOU will be on the next one to fall....right?
