Bachmann is gone

I expect that the people at Wait Wait Don't Tell Me and especially Jon Stewart will be in tears to hear that Michelle Bachmann has resigned.

On another note, the only bridge between Detroit and Windsor is owned by one man, and is not public. Personally, this seems like a really dangerous move to allow one person to hold such a valuable North American asset, for the same reasons that I think that the railroads should be public. As a capitalist, I believe in having competition for any privately traded goods, and that goods that we need (like bridges) that are naturally monopolistic should be publicly owned. When we privatize our necessary infrastructure, we give an immense amount of power to a third party with no incentive to keep prices reasonable, and make the economy inefficient.
