AHEM

A two-lane bridge has collapsed in Pittsburgh just hours before US President Joe Biden was expected to visit to discuss his infrastructure bill.

(Thanks to Emily, Leslie and w)

From This Blog's 2021 Year In Review:

Congress finally passes the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, intended to repair the nation’s crumbling roads and bridges through the acquisition and deployment of 48 billion rolls of duct tape. This is the first big legislative win for Biden, who travels to New Hampshire to promote the new law by making a speech on a bridge constructed in 1939, which immediately thereafter collapses into the Pemigewasset River.

Dave! You are The Prophet we were waiting for!

I thought Dave was the profit.

Well, so much for that theory that says: "We'll cross that bridge when we get to it".

@cfjk Just be VERY careful when you cross it.

Actually, it's more like the bridge double crosses you.

Order up! One shovel-ready project!

The blog was just looking for an excuse to use the word, "Pemigewasset" again.
