Thank you, FAKE NEWS! //. . . while the engineering flaws that led to the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge are revealed using a swing, jump rope, and plastic bottles. \\
You see, once Fake Newsies print something, it is forever repeated by the unthinking masses [or critics at Publishers Weekly!] No, lemmings don't run off cliffs - - no, there was no 13th monkey - - no, we are not all related by six degrees of separation or less!
And no, there weren't original design flaws with the Narrows Bridge, the company wanted to cut costs, and the original design specified certain materials, but the senior execs wanted cheaper materials substituted, the design engineer replied, no, then the bridge wouldn't hold, so they fired him and hired an incompetent Yes-Man as the chief engineer!
Now that is what we call, Real News, a most valuable and rare commodity in the US of A!
