Roads to nowhere

It's always amusing to read about those various roads and bridges to nowhere: pieces of pork-barrel politics, make work schemes and worse. Japan was a particular victim as its government took the Keynesian attitude of spending to prime the economy to ridiculous lengths and lead to (amongst other things) corruption and waste. But it's not so amusing when it's your own tax dollars going to waste, and over at Asia Sentinel they take a look at Hong Kong's useless Stonecutter's Bridge, which you can see on any trip to the airport and wonder what the hell they were thinking.

The scarier question is once the bridge is built, what will they do next?
