“No, but I fear for the guy they keep talking about with the jackhammer.”

If one jackhammer could do that...there’s a bigger problem than the jackhammer.

The Twins game has now started. I wondered if it would be called off or delayed.

KSTP news obtained a copy of a MNDOT inspection report that said structural members at the approaches showed significant fatigue.

Baseball game to go on. Guess they would rather keep people in one place rather than sending 10’s of thousands people back onto the road.

there are some here that feel better slinging that crap when a horrible tragedy is unfolding. Not the time and the place.

CNN couldn't wait to break away to the Tillman case. They just couldn't resist to call military members "liars" and demean soldiers, generals, the President, and the WOT.

With that said, they are back on the story.

CNN sucks.

No denying it’s horrific, but I would not want to rely on Shep in an emergency.

They said the bridge was under construction but their was a TRUCK burning underneath the bridge??!!!

Now they are saying a heat wave?

Come on?! Bridges just don’t fall down! This could be terrorism.

I can’t believe the pictures I am seeing on TV!

I also think Shep is doing a great job reporting.
