Gee! Our brand-new bridge that cost a billion dollars turned out to be too steep to drive in icy weather. Coulda knocked us over with a feather!
In these days of intoxicating talk of spending trillions of dollars on “infrastructure”–a word meaning “anything”–we can wonder how many of these projects will turn out to be a total waste of time and money. You know–bridges that you can’t cross if there’s winter weather going on, that sort of thing.
Didn’t Obama or someone promise there’d be no more winter if we gave the government all our money?
