8 Billion Dollar Bridge with Duct Tape

Was just listening to the San Francisco talk show about the bay bridge and the fact it could need yet another $3 billion in tax payer funds to overcome "problems" in the construction. The show learned yesterday a supervisor had been suspended (with pay) for bragging about how she fixed a problem. It seems that no one sealed a bolt connection and it was rusting out. She fixed it - with duct tape. To which she apparently bragged about to so many people that it finally bit her in the back side and they suspended her.

Oh by the way you living wage guys/gals: How does $275 an hour sound? That's what some of the prevailing wages are for some of the construction workers on the $8 billion bridge.
