Ruins in river could be Bridgehenge

To the editor:

I think we should not destroy what's left of our old bridge. When the bridge was destroyed on Sept. 9, the ruins reminded me of Stonehenge. I think we should keep it as it is and call it Bridgehenge. Just think: Cape Girardeau could market itself as "Cape Girardeau -- Home of Bridgehenge."

We could even install coin-operated binoculars at Riverfront Park so tourists could get a real close-up view of the ruins. We could really make some money from all that scrap steel.
