By now you’ve no doubt heard about the collapse of the I-35W bridge which crosses the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. The television video I’ve seen so far shows nothing short of a complete catastrophe. There are reports of over 50 cars in the river water. A freight train was crushed underneath the bridge. At least one 18-wheeler truck is submerged. There’s no telling how many deaths will result from the tragedy. As of now (8:30 PM PDT), 7 are confirmed dead. Early reports have ruled out terrorism.
