As seems to be consistent with these highway cartoons, the numbers have changed but the issues remain. As was widely reported last August, for example, the number of deficient bridges is way up.

Here's a little side note about this one: the songs on the radio may seem to date the strip, but they were chosen to enhance the message.

Second side note: at the time I drew this, 96.1 was a top 40 station on the Wasatch Front; when I moved to Oregon, 96.1 was an oldies station in the Willamette Valley. The tunes stayed true to the cartoon even though I moved.

Third side note: as an odd coincidence, it's lyricist Bernie Taupin's birthday, so it's interesting that "Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road" would show up today. Who knew?
