    It will be interesting to see how things really play out in Atlanta vs the hysteria going on right now

  • Pat

    Should start set fires to I-345 in Dallas and I-81 in Syracuse and speed up the tear downs.

  • mortacai

    You don’t think they will be rebuilt? Even hopelessly liberal Oakland, CA rebuilt a freeway in a similar incident a few years ago.

    SF did a couple of small teardowns after an earthquake but i would not hold your breath about that being repeated outside of OnePercentLand.

  • Pat

    I-81 needs to be rebuilt anyway. Force the decision!
