Terrible news from Baltimore.
Thoughts to all those involved.

Woke up this morning to that on the news. Terrible, some cars on the bridge when it collapsed. Maybe 7 but possibly up to 20. Pulled a couple survivors out of the water, one is OK other has severe injuries. They are still searching but I doubt any left submerged will survive.

Imagine if this had happened during rush hour traffic ?!
It doesn't bear thinking about.

Thousands cross that bridge every day. Rush hour would have been an even more terrible loss of life. Looks like there are 6 people missing that they know of so far.

Thanks to the quick thinking and immediate actions of the crew and the people on the bridge a lot of lives were saved. It could have been much worse.


We all like to think of ourselves as rugged individualists. But when push comes to shove most of us are sheep who do what we are told. Worst of all, a lot of us become unpaid agents of whoever is controlling the agenda by enforcing the current dogma on the few rugged individualists who actually exist.

I heard that authorities are looking to blame someone for negligence looking for someone to sue I guess. A canadian ship expert was on TV that day and said yes those big motors do stall, more often then one would think .Perhaps a better design of footing or tug boats used in critical situations would have been appropriate, look back inwards port authority.
