The Wilson Bridge Detonation Was BullshitIt wasn't a glorious crumble and collapse like you see on the tv news sometimes, and it sure wasn't worth the wait. There was no glorious rumble, no shaking of the earth, and certainly no gigantic splash that comes from a million tons of concrete hitting the water.
We stood on the overpass in the hot humid night, surrounded by witty, effervescent rednecks singing na na na na na na na hey hey goodbye like they wrote it, all to see a series of orange firecrackers go off and a giant puff of dirt.
Anyone says they've got a good photo of this has the keys to Wonder Woman's invisible jet because there were no planes in the sky tonight either.
This, though -- this is some SERIOUS destruction: 16 buildings being felled simultaneously with 1,500 pounds of explosives. Apologies for the Fox news ...
