I guess I should not be surprised at how much the national and local news has been dominated by the 35W bridge collapse last week.
Having lived in Minnesota for 20 years I am certainly not surprised at how people jumped to the aid of others without prompting or thought.
So I probably should not be surprised that the media is already publishing stories trying to put blame for this incident on some one or some group. I am curious, why does the media assume that there is always incompetence or neglect behind these disasters? To assume that some one is always responsible also assumes that we are always perfect in our knowledge. That seems like unreasonably high standards to me.
