I know that soon after I posted "I blame (Gov.) Jim Douglas..." someone from the lunderville.com domain spent a couple of minutes on this site, apparently reading what I had written.
Hmmm, Neil Lunderville was formerly Transportation Secretary in Vermont... and is currently Governor Douglas's Chief of Staff. Perhaps he has a Google alert set up on "Jim Douglas" (or "collapsing Vermont bridges") or something, if it was him, I hope he liked my site (it's far from liberal, it's more of an equal opportunity detractor, taking shots at both left and right), and, to quote the X-Files, "the truth is out there."
And, the Times-Argus ran an article quoting state and city officials saying that the Taylor Street bridge was A-OK... leave it to the experts, not amateur bridge inspectors. Myself, I have my doubts.
