Just a thought from 13 October 2003 about .
Think you're having a bad day? Read this stunning New Yorker story and realize how good you've got it. Personally, I'll never look at the Golden Gate the same way again.
Motto had a patient who committed suicide from the Golden Gate in 1963, but the jump that affected him most occurred in the seventies. "I went to this guy's apartment afterward with the assistant medical examiner," he told me. "The guy was in his thirties, lived alone, pretty bare apartment. He'd written a note and left it on his bureau. It said, 'I'm going to walk to the bridge. If one person smiles at me on the way, I will not jump.'"
This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “Jumpers” that I wrote on 13 October 2003.
Before this, I wrote a little something called “Whoosh” on 9 October 2003. After this, I wrote “Mazel tov” on 13 October 2003.
I hate fleet week so much....
