"The good news of the day is that the Stadium Bridge will reopen today after nearly a year of being closed (it was totally replaced, I have to thank all of you good taxpayers though because they used federal funds to do it). Having that bridge open will reduce my commute by 33%! Can't wait to once again have a sub-ten minute commute instead of 15+ minutes. It doesn't seem like a lot but multiply that by two each day (ten minutes) then by five most weeks (50 minutes) then a year minus vacation (so around 50 weeks) and we're talking nearly TWO ENTIRE DAYS of my life used up on detours around this one bridge. Plus another 500 miles of driving or so (one extra mile each way, ten miles a week, 50 weeks). So it cost me at least $50 counting gas and wear-and-tear (probably double that). Just a bunch of hassle that I'll be more than happy to be without!" - colovion

Damn sum-a-bitch government! They should have let a private company build that bridge and then charge a toll to everyone that uses it. Much better.
