    To my untrained-eye, the bridge in the photo on the right looks newer.

    The old bridge was all steel pillars and the new one is all cement pillars, so the left hand side is the new one. If you look closely at the bottom right you can see one of the old pillars wrapped for the earthquake proofing they did a few years ago.

    Ya Aman, I must have an untrained eye then. The bridge on the right does look newer to me.

    They should really be protesting outside of the IRS. But they probably won’t… because the IRS might find out who you are and make your life miserable. Oh wait, they already do.

Sorry, comment time is over.
