The deal has always smelled. Dig deep and you'll find the money flowing under the table. It was easy to pull off with all of the emotion surrounding the bridge collapse and the need to rebuild quickly. Someone is making some serious money on this - and it's not just Flatiron.

I've no doubt there is a shady deal here but if history is allowed to repeat itself there will be no public discloser under the terms of the inevitable settlement years down the line.Once again the taxpayers will pay the bill.The public service and private business players will never be held accountable. The outrage will have subsided and the apathetic public will have forgotten.The attorneys and long gone politicians already know this. We have only ourselves to blame for allowing such a"justice system" to exist.
