    not looking foward to August, still haven’t really come to grips with the first time around yet.

    Wait… what? Wow. It strikes me as bizarre that they would throw a *prayer service* in for the anniversary of the bridge collapse. I don’t care if it’s “interfaith”. What does faith have to do with it anyway? Sure, it was a catastrophe and people died, but if the families of the victims need to have a special unofficial memorial service, they’re certainly free to do that on their own.
