Bostons Big Dig Tunnel Takes a Leak

by Rolway / September 21, 2004 6:22 AM PDT

One of the walls sprung an 8" hole flooding lanes in Bostons New Tunnel system last week. It also has been noticed the road surface has a slight buckle to it giving you a ride thru like a boat riding the waves. Yep, Tax payers dollars at work.

Can we say that traffic going through the Big Dig paused for a day or two last week, while one of its most extraordinary tunnels took a leak?

And can we say, further, that if 143 commuters should suddenly find themselves drowning like rats in a Big Dig tunnel, this will bring a vibrant new meaning to the old term, "rat race"?

The division race is just a matter of pride. Both teams are going to the postseason; I think they've both already clinched or are very close to clinching at least the Wild Card spot.

Should be another exciting postseason. Yanks, Twins, Sox, and ....? Anaheim or Oakland?

You've got to be kidding. It must be a Harvard design.

An MIT design wouldn't DARE to spring a leak.
