Re "Bridge barrier is funded in bid to stop suicides" (Page A3, June 28): Spending $76 million to construct a net under the Golden Gate Bridge to thwart suicide attempts is a big waste of money. It's going to take years for this project to be completed, and as any environmentalist will tell you, by that time the ocean will have risen enough that jumping off the bridge will be equivalent to diving off the high dive at a community swimming pool.
