The Real Reason the I-10 Bridge Will Never Be Replaced

I was sitting around the office the other day contemplating the meaning of life and trying to figure out what to have for dinner when I was struck by a sudden epiphany. The thought came to me so clearly and things that I had wondered about suddenly became quite clear. I knew in that moment of realization and total self awareness just why the I-10 Bridge will not be replaced any time soon.

I started adding up all the clues and finally came to the inescapable conclusion that the entire area around the I-10 Bridge is caught up in this whole time warp and the whole time-space continuum has been thrown off and I think I know the culprit. Let me give you an example.

Several months ago, we hired some folks to do a refurbish job on one of the restrooms here at 92.9 The Lake. Well, the folks came in and worked for a couple of weeks and, just when it looked like they were nearing the end of the job, they just disappeared. I haven’t seen them since and here is how the bathroom looks now:

As we can see, nothing started in the area of the I-10 Bridge gets completed, but I don’t blame the bridge. I think what we have working in this area is a good old fashioned jinx! I don’t know what was on the land before the Harrah’s Parking Garage, but I maintain we’ve upset some sort of evil spirit that messes with time and space. Very subtle, but highly effective. Here’s a recent shot of that malevolent structure.

Let me make a recommendation to our new mayor; blow it up! Implode it. We should auction off chances to be the one to push the plunger. The city would make a small fortune off the deal and we would be rid of the I-10 Bridge Tower of Evil.

Today the Parking Garage of Horror, tomorrow the Bridge of Death.
