Re "Two-and-a-half years, this issue is even more clear: is the bridge safe?" (Editorial, June 29): Bay Bridge inspectors are now putting duct tape over cracks and rust on the bridge. Wow, what a marketing bonanza for the makers of duct tape.

They can advertise "The London Bridge may be falling down, but our duct tape is keeping the Bay Bridge safe and sound."
