Gravina Bridge
by Thomas Ferry


April 16, 2004

I read the AP story from the New York Times about the amount of pork for the Gravina bridge and other letters addressed to Sitnews about what a waste of money on the bridge that still might not be built.

I wonder if these people were as critical of the big dig in Boston that Ted Kennedy and his bunch were behind. I think it's up to 15 billion right now. Do you realize that is enough money to build seventy five Gravina bridges for a small city like Boston.

Where's the outrage against that boondoggle? It's about time we got our slice of pork!
