PLEASE SEE UPDATE AT END OF COLUMN.
So, someone has died as the result of the criminal negligence involved in the biggest boondoggle in Massachusetts' political history (which covers one hell of a lot of ground.)
I heard someone connected with the state say, following the incident, that the tunnel was "structurally sound".
LIE. LIE. LIE.
A multi-ton piece of it fell and killed a woman. The state has work crews dismantling the roof of the tunnel even as I write. It is, therefore, not "structurally sound".
I'm ashamed to be from this state.
UPDATE: I just read the piece referenced by Friday18 in the comments section. You should, too. Here it is.
