I'm fine; some Fringers were late

I found out about the 35W bridge collapse just before I left for the Ootie Showcase, walking along Lake Street and no where near the affected area. Three of the performers were unable to make it, and the announcement was that it was due to traffic and no one was hurt.

That bridge is about three miles from here and I might have taken it if the Ootie Showcase was in the same NE venue as the Fringe-For-All. Probably not (94 is best) but it's a scary thought.

Gov. Pawlenty is known for delaying highway maintenance so he could cut taxes for his friends. I hope Minnesota has learned its lesson: Infrastructure is worth paying for.
