21.1.10

31 jumped from the GGB in 2009


The title should be clickable, but, just in case it isn't, here's the link again:

Ken Holmes released the numbers for 2009: 31; of those 20 bodies were recovered; 9 suicides without a body but witnesses (and I really don't envy those poor people); and 2 disappearances with evidence of suicide (such as a note or personal possessions left behind).

Too many!

And, yes, I do have an endless supply of pictures of that bridge.

Too many! still!

Can't wait to see what progress is made in 2010 -- hope it is tangible progress, and not more, endless, waiting.

Interesting ideas on presenting the "whose shoes" exhibit in other ways, venues.

31 too many! Hopefully something will get done this year.

It shows up in TV shows, too. That bridge needs a safety net!
