    The fall of the empire bridge

    Destroyed American milestones are a staple of post-apocalyptic movies at least since Planet of the Apes. But very few expected massive infrastructure failure before, or leading to, post-apocalyptic times.
    The Mental Floss article mentioned above points to this report of the American Society of Civil Engineers which gives a score to all infrastructures in the country. And bridges come out on top with a C; road, for instance, flunk with a D. No wonder governors and mayors are taking up the task in their own hands, paving roads and supporting science.
    Next election will probably be about "It's the roads, stupid", but, meanwhile, the "pothole index" is a more robust indicator of the future of the economy than any other.
