Penny wise, pound foolish?

An interesting bit of perspective on the Minneapolis bridge collapse, submitted to Risks Digest by Sidney Markowitz: would have cost a little over 10 minutes of Iraq war expenditures to have repaired the I-35W bridge before it collapsed, and now it will cost about 100 bridges worth of preventative maintenance to repair this one bridge after the fact.
