I'll step on Denny's toes.

Let's talk bridges again. That's always fun! :p

Here in the US, we really know how to build bridges. Maybe we can supply a consultant or two to AC for their project, eh?

For example:

A proposed bridge to connect Ketchikan AK (pop. less than 8000 hardy souls) to Gravina Island is looking pretty promising. The project will replace a rather picaresque 7-minute ferry ride between Ketchikan and Gravina (where the local airport is actually located).

Costs are estimated in the US$315 million range.

Now, to be fair, there are nearly 13,000 residents in the county, trimming the project down to something in the range of only US$25,000.00 or so per person.

Anybody got a breakdown on the local project figures? laugh wink :p

I have bridges in my mind... no, really, I do... however, they go nowhere. My thoughts get on the bridge at one side, and then they disappear in the fog before they ever get to the other end of the bridge. I often wonder where the toll collectors are.... where does the traffic go? Where the hell am I?

eek

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.
