Some Things Just Go Together

Red Beans (Hat Tip:Gentilly Girl)
At least 12 tons of concrete collapsed onto a car in a Big Dig tunnel, fatally crushing a passenger and prompting renewed scrutiny Tuesday of a troubled highway project that is already the costliest in U.S. history. The state attorney general said he plans to treat the site as a crime scene that could lead to negligent homicide charges...

What we are looking at is anyone who had anything to do with what happened last night," Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly said. "No one is going to be spared."

Gov. Mitt Romney pinned much of the blame on the head of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority and promised to take legal action to oust Matthew Amorello. He compared the situation to the replacement of former Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Michael Brown after Hurricane Katrina.

...the notion that what happened to New Orleans almost a year ago was a hit from a hurricane, as opposed to the fact: that what almost destroyed the city was a set of levee breaches caused by the design and construction flaws of the levees and floodwalls, courtesy of the US Army Corps of Engineers

Hate to be the one to say it, but I'm not sure how seriously we can take the first story. Both Reilly and Romney might be a little inclined toward chest beating and political posturing, under the circumstances

I'm inclined to agree that some of this sounds like posturing We had a lot of that here in October 2005.

Romney may not even run for re-election, he's thinking of trying to be the first Mormon President. A truly scary thought.
