You know what sometimes keeps me up at night...

Sometimes I wonder how the Big Dig started. How any tunnel gets started really.

Not the paperwork and the planning and the politics and crap.

But like who was the FIRST person to make the very FIRST stab at the ground with their shovel and actually START the Big Dig.

Oh and not the photo-op stuff either.

Was it a Monday morning at 7am with some guy in a back hoe and another guy shouting at him "Hey Sully! A little more to the left! A little more...... more...... more...... YEAH! Right there! Dig right THERE!"

I am glad it's done, but these are the little details that sometimes I wonder about.

That's a really interesting question that I'd never thought about. Now I want to know, too.
