Saw this on The Transportationist.
Lots of interesting stuff on Dr Levinson’s blog, including wonkish stuff like this (I didn’t know this phenomenon could be measured, but leave it to the engineers and physicists). He’s pretty far to the right, though, especially given that he’s in Minnesota, so I don’t agree with everything he says (you know, except for the factual stuff). Still, worth following. Now that I’m getting the hang of “following” in WordPress. But not reblogging. That I haven’t gotten the hang of.
This article is five years old at this point, but the author makes interesting parallels between the 2007 I-35 bridge collapse in Minnesota, the financial industry collapse of 2008, and the closely-related collapse in the housing market in … well, I guess that’s kind of still going on. Read the article to see what the author means.
