image for An impatient Fort Worth Tires of waiting for bridges to be built

The City of Fort Worth has decided to delay construction on the Henderson Street Bridge. Residents from all over Tarrant County, at least a part of it anyway, filled the room as the City Council made the announcement. The residents understandably were upset by the Council's decisions last Tuesday.

Mistletoe Heights resident, Jason Jacobs, left the city council meeting in horror as he realized he'd have to wait a year before construction would begin on the Henderson Bridge. "While I don't see what's wrong with the bridge they have now, I was excited about the delays the bridge construction would cause. I hate my job and the delays would mean more time listening to Green Day in the car. Why does it have to take so long?"

Hannah Youngblood was equally disturbed. Yet she was upset at the fact the reason construction would be delayed is because they would be debating adding a roundabout to their plans. "Why does it take so long to decide about a roundabout? A year seems excessive. If it took me that long to decide things, my family and I would go hungry!" Ms. Youngblood is planning a protest. "Is it too unreasonable for these people to think faster? I think fast all the time. I do forget my keys a lot though."

Not everyone was concerned about the Henderson Street Bridge. Diego Reyes is tired of looking at the equipment that never seems to be used to finish the Rosedale exit bridge. "I don't get it. I see bulldozers. I see concrete. Nothing ever seems to move. Everything is in the same place as it was the day before. I'm getting really tired of taking Forest Park instead of Rosedale." Diego's nephew, who chooses not to be named, admitted he really didn't care. "I only came to the meeting because my uncle said we'd go to Pei Wei afterwards. I really like ginger broccoli with fried rice."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
