HOORAY FOR THE INFRASTRUCTURE BILL!
Looks like everybody who was at the signing was pretty happy about it.
Well, all right, the truth is that I am an inveterate insomniac and when I'm lying awake at night for hours on end I end up worrying about all kinds of things, mostly just to kill time. But the fact is, infrastructure is a worthy subject for worry.
I mean, just knowing that any one of us could be driving over a dilapidated bridge at the moment it finally gives up the ghost or on a pot-hole-ridded roadway when it cracks open into a yawning sink-hole beneath us...And how far off is the moment when our frazzled electric grid finally fizzles and all life as we know it goes down like the Titanic?
Really, when it comes to infrastructure in this country, what's not to stay awake at night worrying about?
And that's not even counting the national shame we should have over the state of some of our international airports. The last time I returned from Spain via the Philadelphia airport the international arrival area was so run-down and dirty that I wanted to shrink from mortification at the thought of all the foreign travelers whose first glimpse of our country was this disreputable corridor. Especially since I'd just come from the ultra-modern, ultra-passenger-friendly Madrid airport.
Of course as it turned out with Trump the harmony didn't last beyond the victory speech and, as we all know, the highways, bridges, tunnels and airports continued to crumble for four more years.
But that period of our nation's history is, thankfully, over, and now, finally, finally, our national infrastructure will soon be on the mend, with the allocation of money for projects expected to begin within six months.
