Ask yourself this ...

I usually don't stray too far from writing about sports, but there is something I need to vent about.

Why does it take something like the I-35W bridge collapse in Minnesota to bring issues with the nation's infrastructure -- read: real news -- to the forefront.

Remember, it wasn't all that long ago that the lead news story on the networks, print and digital media was poor lil' Paris Hilton's emotional meltdown about going to jail over her driving issues. Then there was her release -- you would've thought she was Nelson Mandela.

Of course, that was replaced recently by Lindsay Lohan's DUI just 11 days after leaving rehab.

Is anyone else outraged or am I making too much of this?

And one more thing ... it would take a reported $1.6 TRILLION (follow along here -- $1,600,000,000,000) to completely repair the U.S. infrastructure.

How much has the war in Afghanistan cost? The war in Iraq?

Now, where's the outrage?

Can you imagine if they had to rebuild one of the East River bridges? Shudder.
