Reader: People need to stop whining about construction traffic delays

When we shared our recent post about the construction and installation of the bridge at I-70 and Pecos, we asked if any Facebookers had gotten stuck in traffic as a result of the project. One reader suggests that those complaining about such good delays could use a good spanking.

Ken Elwell writes:

Had to take a detour so a new/better bridge could be built. OH THE HUMANITY! Quit yer belly-aching people. Just shows how soft of a society we are becoming. If the old bridge had deteriorated and caused damage to people/property you'd whine about that too.
