We’ve wasted enough money on I-73

Like millions around the globe, I kept up with the Olympics on TV. A few days go, the games went to commercial break and I settled in for what I assumed was another political campaign spot. Scenic landscapes, swelling music and a voiceover announcing the virtues of … a road. That’s right, a road.

Well I’m not buying it and neither should you.
