It's All In The Engineering

A bridge in China has collapsed. At least 22 people are dead, and another 46 are still missing.

There has been a lot of talk lately about China's rapidly growing economy, and some have even suggested that the communist country is overtaking the United States in terms of manufacturing and technological know-how. That may or may not be true, but this incident clearly demonstrates that at least in one area, we still beat the Chinese hands down: We know how to how to engineer OUR bridges so that fewer people die when THEY collapse.
