I’m afraid American infrastructure is decaying. But people are kinda nonchalant about it.
It feels like the dam collapse in Michigan has hardly riled up anyone. I care, but I don’t really care because I’d never go there. Oh, well.

Can you imagine if this were in China? The western press would be all over it.

LOL Crap happens all the time in China, you never hear about it.

Dams, bridges fail, Riots etc...

High Speed Rail crashes etc,..

You never hear about it here.

Agree with Shoveler.

It happens everywhere but the news we watch focuses mostly on news closer to home. It's not just in the US, news sources everywhere do that.

Dam collapses, bridge collapses and the collapse of other infrastructure is nothing new...it's happened since dams and bridges and other infrastructure was created.

The Michigan dam burst is relatively minor. Read about the St Francis Dam sometime.
