WALD MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 8 — Investigators have found what may be a design flaw in the bridge that collapsed here a week ago, in the steel parts that connect girders, raising safety concerns for other bridges around the country, federal officials said today…. If those who designed the bridge in 1964 miscalculated the loads and used metal parts that were too weak for the job, it would recast the national debate that has emerged since the collapse a week ago, about whether enough attention has been paid to maintenance, and raises the possibility that the bridge was structurally deficient from the day it opened.

Why we fight the war: Foolish mortal, the oil, the ‘allies’ in the house of Saud, stategic positioning, which will be replaced by a reformed Iraq in a few years, once Al Quaida is routed out of there and we get oil from them we can tackle the Sauidi problem if they don’t comply we’ll use their competitor or possibly mexico if we can get oil out of them…. Its about doing a duty, showing responsibility, and protecting the country so the rest of us can live our lives, and even disagree about this, preserving freedom, etc. These people like Pat Tillman who made the ultimate sacrifice need to be respected, saluted, and celebrated as TRUE American heroes with the ULTIMATE respect you can give as well as defending them verbally as I try to do.
