Sadly

One of my primal fears is to be caught on a bridge during an earthquake. My heart goes out to everyone in Minneapolis who had their bridge drop out from under them. It was very gratifying to hear how people rushed in to help pull folks out of the wreckage. June of 2005 I was in Minneapolis on business - the business was in Clear Lake, IA but I had lots of time to kill waiting for my flight home so I went to downtown Minneapolis and walked across bridges for several hours. When I first heard the news, I thought maybe I had been risking life & limb. But no, the bridges I was on were much older, and are not Interstate bridges
