Oh geez, and on the lower level no less.
“Il be drivin home to you” Funny thats where my mind went right away. Do you like Skinny Leah or Chunky Leah
Leah said she’s through with scientology, good for her.
NEITHER! To high maintenance for my taste.
Ah, yes I remember the Queensboro. Years ago when I had a delivery business I HATED having to cross that bridge. Driving on the approach roads on either side of it is a big time PITA. OTOH, This bridge was an amazing engineering feat when it was constructed in the early 1900’s.
And then there is that voice
actually i’m surprised things like this don’t happen more often.
Skinny AFTER Chunky.
“This bridge was an amazing engineering feat when it was constructed in the early 1900s.”
The Pulaski Skyway connecting Newark & Jersey City is similar; won all kinds of awards when it was built (when few people had cars), but now is just a disaster. I was stuck in traffic on it years ago; there was a car on fire in the right lane, people squeezing past in the left, and no shoulder. They have exit ramps from the fast lane as well.
That was the first thing I thought of as well.
Yep, she was an Olympic class nagger. Love the show, though.
Upgrades and expansions are called for throughout the region, but too many people are reflexively anti-infrastructure.
I think taxpayers don’t mind if there is a purpose and the cost is shared by all; if the infrastructure of a welfare hive or an illegal enclave is crumbling, taxpayers feel no responsibility towards addressing it (and I agree - they already feed, house, clothe, and school the inhabitants).
Here in NJ most residents feel no urgency about addressing the shore because they can’t relate to places that have a six-month fiscal year that results in pizza costing $5 per slice. Some of the beaches futher north along the shore haven’t seen am American taxpayer in years.
