A Bridge Too Far Gone?

You Complete Me clinton-library-gap-bridge.jpg

The Clinton Library opened in 2004 with incessant bridge imagery physical and rhetorical, but some disgruntled locals claim something is missing: a bridge.

Build Our Bridge claims the Library agreed to renovate a nearby railroad bridge as a condition of acquiring city property. References to the bridge’s glossy future do litter the landscape, it even got a mention in the failed Baylor University bid for the George W. Bush Presidential Library.

The Clinton Library still says bridge repair is in the works, and they continue to sell clinton-stones.JPG l stone markers to finance the project.

By happy coincidence the public face of the bridge builders is Gene Pfeifer, whose land was seized by Little Rock while assembling the Clinton project property.
