priorities

A bridge spanning the Skagit River near Mt. Vernon, WA collapsed last night, sending cars and people into the water below.

Several were injured, but amazingly no one was killed.


Uncle Sam is slipping and sliding.

He's so addicted to playing the ponies that he doesn't have the money to fix his roof, or so he says, although he's still making low-interest loans to the local loan shark. Now the roof is letting in sunshine  and rain.

Someone needs to set him straight. Once a building is unroofed, it's as good as gone.

The only reason this diseased sack of guts and corruption hasn't collapsed already is that he's too big to fail, too big to die.

They closed one of our bridges to cars and trucks. I guess it was because of safety.

The government here in WA is going nuts trying to figure out how to open Interstate 5 for Memorial Day, when all the Canadians come down to Seattle and bring their money with em.

That would be a feat to see the government there do.
