I am Doris in N CA. Over time, this has become the "serious" blog.
Since the suicide of my son, I have become involved in suicide awareness and, yes, that creeps into the blog on a fairly regular basis.
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).
And, yes, I do have an endless supply of pictures of that bridge.
