I do not think it wise to allow me anywhere near bridges or perhaps just Portsmouth. When I came for the symposium in 2011, I had the privilege of being on the old truss bridge for one of the last times. I thought then that it was the last day but I think now they were having a party before it shut. This week I watched as an enormous sea going ship lost its moorings and thumped into the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge between Portsmouth, N.H and Kittery, Maine. The bridges over the Piscataqua River ( what a great name!!) were just a couple of hundred yards away from each other, I foresee traffic jams for some time.
