Bridge to Nowhere May Lead Us Somewhere Yet

Looks like the “bridge to nowhere” is becoming a government waste anecdote for the ages. Take this paragraph from the Washington Post:

Lawmakers say voters are stopping them back home to ask whether the “Bridge to Nowhere” is a joke or whether it actually exists. It is no joke. The project, championed by Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), would link tiny Ketchikan, with a population of 8,900, with its airport on Gravina Island — population 50.

Maybe, if w keep the pressure up enough, the “bridge to nowhere” can help lead us to fiscal responsibility.
