This country's infrastructure is in the pits. In the last few weeks we've seen a bridge collapse, planes in complete disarray and I've personally had no water for two days and then power went down the very next day. This morning was probably the worse commute so far when my fourteen minute train ride was converted into an hour and 10 minutes because of the few inches of rain that feel last night. Apparently the entire New York transportation system is in complete disarray. Wow!, this is the most powerful society ever! Given the wealth of resources and money at their disposal, this feels more like a shoddy excuse for progress. No major capital investment on infrastructure over the last 50 years or so and the signs are for all to see. Traffic jams that waste billions of dollars a year are common. However, the nation is busy fixated on TV and the see-saw crap of Wall Street's indexes.
