I read with interest the blog that there had been a disaster in Minneapolis in America and a bridge had collapsed into the River and it struck a note of despair
in the reader ... only last night I was watched Agatha Christie''s great book
Murder on the Orient Express made into a film and produced on a DVD ...
Ingrid Bergman plays a missionary and she refers to "Mnneapolis" in America and her job is
to teach brown babies as she is backward and they are as backward as she is in
Africa. The film stars among others, Lauren Becall, Vanessa Redgrave,
Sir Michael Redgrave, Colin Blakely and is a truly great film in the
genre of Crime ... murder ... and ... mystery.
Its hard to see how a bridge can collapse as one is looking for a cause and often
as we say here its down to the weather ... the bridge appears in my life and
a few years I was standing on one .. surrounded by armed trucks, media men
and high flying politicians ... a row broke out about crossing it .. and the
army had created a road bloc so I could hear the hue and cry from my
back garden and decided to follow my nose the whole way along to the
bridge and found there was a major crisis in Belfast.
The tragedy of the bridge in Minneapolis, has resulted in 7 people being
killed ... 100 vehicles were on the bridge at the end and most of the
cars ended up on the water ... is it terrorism or not ... everything
started shaking .... and eye witnesses are giving a recorded account
on BBC Radio 2 ... horrorific news in Minneapolis in the United
States of America ...
Great blog from AP - keep on reading .. excellent stuff!
