    Goddamnit, I hope this doesn't slow up traffic when I'm driving through MPLS tomorrow.

    Oh, and I hope people are ok too.

    The Mississippi River is huge. Second largest in N. America...

    Anyway, very tragic. I've been across that bridge many times but I don't live there like some of you. I agree with identity-x I would think that I was dreaming.

    i was driving on 55 yesterday(which merges onto 35W near that bridge)....as we were going home, all of a sudden i hear helicopters passing us over and ambulances speeding by. at the time i didn't give it a second thought. that bridge is just east of downtown/metrodome as you cross the Mississippi...and 2 minutes from where i live. i went over that bridge just 2-3 days ago too.

    fucking devastating. 80 injured, 20-30 missing, 4 dead(confirmed), 5 in critical condition.

    Yeah, I just moved back here to go back to school last year.

    Did you hear they're coming out with a Best of Paparazzi Productions DVD, hosted by Nash and Shelley? You'll probably want to camp out in front of Best Buy for that one to make sure you get a copy. I know I will be.

    UW-Baraboo, actually. If I don't get into any of the other schools I want, I'll probably go to UW after this year.

    Heart Breaking for sure :/

    Those pictures of ppl are saddening to me tho :/ I can't handle pictures with kids hurt!!!

    I was actually thinking when I saw it on the news how fucking freaky it would be being those cars just on the edge there....Gosh I'd fucking die from panic attack if I was on there :/ That's just insane!!!!

    I have 3 friends in MN--2 which live near there. Ones husband drives it daily for work. But all are okay--thank God.
