Does it sound trite if I suggest that somebody should have seen that coming? Whoever is in charge of maintaining that damn needs to get the Ray Charles Award.

Yes, it may be only shadow, but undermining does appear to be occurring. The whole thing needs to be demo'd and re-designed, though what form that will take may still be being discussed. I'm sure that California will want to go it alone in terms of paying for it, because they don't want to be part of the US. Come on, legislature, don't let me down by caving in to the Americans and taking their money. Be like any third world country and stand firm against the Yankees (who cling to God and guns).

But someday they will have a great train
