Gonna grind out a few hundred of these fliers -- in the style of the colonial New England broadside -- and tape 'em up all over town. In the middle of the night, in the dark, furtively.
If somebody -- the dumb useless Mayor and her Flunky Comatose City Council -- doesn't get their ass in gear and fix and save this Bridge, it's just going to be allowed to rot until the state highway department says it's beyond repair and must be torn down.
And replaced with some undistinguished piece of modern shit.
Save the beautiful bridge now!

Repair and re-open the Clement Street Iron Bridge.
For 111 years, this beautiful one-lane wrought-iron bridge over the Mill River kept families and neighbors connected, and increased Northampton's commerce and prosperity.
Today the Bridge is a useless, rusting nuisance and eyesore.
Each day the Bridge is open, 15,000 neighbors quickly and conveniently reach their workplaces, schools, shops, homes and health providers.
In every season, each practical trip is a beautiful journey through forest, farm, mountains and villages.
The Bridge is a keystone of our infrastructure, and a treasure of nature and rare architecture.
