questions from an article called “Jumpers”

 

 

I

Who would want to jump from the Golden Gate Bridge?
Should I have grabbed his ankles?
Should there be a barrier?

II

In October, construction will be completed on a barrier to prevent
bicyclists from veering into traffic. No cyclist has ever been killed;

nonetheless, the bridge’s chief engineer says that the barrier is necessary: It’s a public-safety issue.

III

Mary Currie, the bridge’s spokeswoman, is an intense woman with short dark-blond hair.

IV

A familiar argument against a barrier is that thwarted jumpers will simply go
elsewhere.

Another factor is cost, which would seem particularly important
now.

V

How are you feeling today?
What’s your plan for tomorrow?
