Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Slashdot Technology Story | Broke Counties Turn Failing Roads To Gravel
To save money, more than 20 Michigan counties have decided to turn deteriorating paved roads back to gravel. Montcalm County estimates that repaving a road costs more than $100,000 a mile. Grinding the same mile of road up and turning it into gravel costs $10,000. At least 50 miles of road have been reverted to gravel in Michigan the past three years.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
