Scott Sathers was one of the victims and a friend of mine. Every time I see a story about the bridge, my heart aches for his family and friends as well as the community of the others affected. To all those folks, I offer my deepest sympathies. I know I am not alone in saying that they will not be forgotten.

While this was a complete tragedy enough is enough already. The media and others can stop talking about it, day after day thats all we hear about. Their were hundreds of ppl on that bridge and the most focus has always seemed to be on the bus.. Come on lets move on and get past this. Its been a year now!

Apparently, it is easier to treat the bridge collapse like a snow storm or a tornado or some other natural catastrophe, than it is to demand that state officials take responsibility for their failure to maintain the bridge.

Why do they have memorials for such horrible events? That's like taking the Kennedy family to a rifle factory every November.

I know, let's have a parade for the bridge collapse victims, and let's march them across a bridge that's three times as old as the one that went down !
