What a Super Bridge

Lydia was a good sport and watched NOVA: Super Bridge with me today. It was originally broadcast in 1997 and chronicles the construction of the Clark Bridge that spans the Mississippi River near Alton. Tom worked on it and briefly appears in the program is the main reason for my interest.

They've been roasting the governor of Missouri who shall not be named because he did such a poor job allocating vaccines in the state.

Every time I read about people having to drive long distances to get vaccinated I fondly recall my horrible journey to the middle of nowhere to get my own shot.

You know who doesn't have to worry about how to get to Alton or how to get to not die of the plague? Ant larvae. Quite a few of them are now my roommates.
