Happy birthday Golden Gate Bridge



Today, in 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge opened to vehicular traffic.  Aside from the fact that my grandparents drove from Iowa to San Francisco on their honeymoon, the bridge was:

  • Completed in 4 years
  • Completed ahead of schedule
  • Completed under budget

Ah, savor the days before lawsuits and politicians got in the way of bridge construction.  Sometimes I think that this country’s government institutions have lost their ability to get things done efficiently (or at all).
