Week V: Progress Not Process
So this week was focused on reading an article from the ghostsofdc.org focusing on the Three Sisters Bridge.
The article does seem to discuss the protests. Funny enough, they actually use the same bridge article I looked at. If I remember correctly, what happened was that among the four proposed bridge ideas, I read later articles that seemed to indicate that the second one was used, I’m pretty sure. It was either the second one or the third one.
The article has many of the same protests that were discussed, mostly because they use the same sources as me. The most notable one is the one discussing the bridge protests from the Georgetown students.
What I found interesting was the article’s writing about how Nixon disapproved of the bridge from the day he entered office. I instead remember that he wanted the bridge until he realized that it was going to be more costly because of the increasing protests on the bridge. Then he decided to switch to the side of the protestors.
I guess that’s just the way it goes.
