I second, or "third", Noletaman's comments. I think generally that arguments that the folks in favor of a barrier make might be closer to the truth if a great many more people chose to jump off places such as cold springs bridge. There was an interesting history in Hong Kong with a spike in suicides from carbon monoxide poisoning (and then in Japan) after a 1998 incident in which an individual or a couple (can't recall which) committed suicide by producing co in a small room. This is not what's happening with bridge suicides.

I don't think we, society via tax-funded measures, can come close in any realistic way to removing dangerous situations. I'm not sure about the various studies of bridges and displacement. I want to thank those who remembered this was a personal tragedy and I hope those who knew this man can come to an reconciliation over this. I'm from the northern part of the State but love this particular area and somehow this story has grabbed me even though I read there was a suicide by another local man not too many weeks earlier.
