No, I was not on the bridge
August 2, 2007
Many of you readers will know that I live in the Twin Cities of Minnesota and will have seen the news about the bridge collapse. The news all over the country is covering this horrific tragedy, as are many outlets outside the U.S. (leading headline on the BBC News website last night). Luckily the "first responders" reacted quickly, pulling many people from the strong river currents. It is sobering to think about how much trust and faith we put into colossal man-made infrastructure every day.
