In the News... as it happens

Salem is divided in half by the Willimette River. There is one connecting bridge, so when something happens on the bridge it effectivly halts traffic between the two sides.
Today, traffic downtown has been unusually tangled. I went for a walk to see what was going on.
Currently, as I type, there is a man on the bridge threatening to jump... it happens from time to time and generally resolves quickly and easily because the bridge isn't high enough to guarentee lethal damage. This guy is a smart one though, he has tied a rope to the bridge and around his neck... he's been up there for hours now.

Go here for pics and update.
