    ...and despite the concern that $600 million for a bridge to a town of 7,000 is about $86,000 per resident.

    Can't wait to see McPalin spin this. Emphasis mine.

    That is sooo sexist. I can't believe you would do that. The nerve! You'd never say that if a man had backed the project...

    in fairness, the main purpose of the bridge is to connect anchorage to the area directly across knik arm, in particular to link development of the ports of Achorage and Mackenzie.

    whether is warranted or not i don't know, but it's normal that these projects are funded by the gov, at least partially.

    the obvious McPain hypocrisy exuding from this is of course another story.
