I am amazed. One reads headlines from countries around the world in which a fruit stand collapses and 35 people are killed. In Minneapolis as many as 100 vehicles rode a bridge deck down 65 feet and because of safety regulations and practices we are looking at 4 dead and 8 missing.
I know that many of us feel that the government gets too involved in the way we design and drive our cars but, damn if that ain't something.
Can one of my techie readers help me? I was flabbergasted when Paula Zahn asked the good people of Minneapolis to stay off their cell phones to keep the lines open. I though that one of the benefits of cellular technology was the ability, in areas where enough towers were available, to switch cells and automatically reroute calls. Is that not the case?
