Déjà Vu, Anyone?

Haven't we seen this movie before?
Played out at the other end of the Mississippi?
In another August?
After years of infrastructure neglect?

Minneapolis is so screwed...

George the Scourge showed up in Minneapolis yesterday for a disaster scene photo-op.

Oh, it was touching.

"I'm here with the Secretary of Transportation, because our message to the Twin Cities is, we want to get this bridge rebuilt as quick as possible; that we understand this is a main artery of life here; that people count on this bridge and this highway system to get to work. There's a lot of paperwork involved with government. One of our jobs is to work with the Governor and the Mayor and the senators and the members of the Congress to cut through that paperwork, and to see if we can't get this bridge rebuilt in a way that not only expedites the flow of traffic, but in a way that can stand the test of time." (But in the very next breath he made "no promise of a time line.")

Like I said...Touching...

I actually heard the fife and drum...

Then realized that a Green Acres rerun was on in the other room.
