Anarchists are idiots

I can't link to the story because of my current Internet issues, but the news out of Cleveland is that five anarchists were arrested trying to blow up a bridge. What they hoped to accomplish by blowing up a bridge in economically-depressed northeast Ohio is anyone's guess.

Even more idiotic is their choice of bridge: the Ohio 82 bridge over the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area in the (wealthy) Cleveland suburb of Brecksville. It's a pretty tall bridge, if memory serves, but just a few miles away is the absolutely-towering Valley View Bridge over the Cuyahoga Valley that carries I-480 between Cleveland's southeastern suburbs and I-77, the main route between Cleveland and Akron. The Valley View Bridge is some 200 feet tall and carries thousands of cars every day. Seen in person it is very impressive. This picture does not do it justice.

Like I said and like we all should know by now, anarchists are idiots.
