    WiseOne's Comments, Hmmm I wonder why bridges are, all of a sudden, dropping like flies? Simply to much traffic? I wonder.

    It'll be interesting to see how long it takes the idiot libs to blame this one on Bush.
    The MN bridge took about 14 or 16 hrs until I heard em do it.

    I don't think there are more "Coincidences",just instant axcess to them.

    Before the computer if you wanted to do some research you went to the library (I think they are still around) LOL.

    Now...all you have to do is plug it into the many search engines and its 'tada' instant front page news.

    It is probably a good thing we aren't importing bridges from China, isn't it?
