    Saving people from themselves - By Thomas Lifson, The American Thinker
    I am in thrall to the Bridge’s beauty. It is an art deco masterpiece, as well as an engineering miracle. Construction was actually begun before all the technology necessary to build such a bridge had been invented. Its designers and builders faced heroic challenges in completing it, and many workers lost their lives. One construction worker who fell but lived was recently-deceased legendary ironworker Al Zampa, a member of what is called the “Halfway to Hell Club.” Today, the newest bridge across an arm of the Bay is a graceful suspension bridge bearing his name, a fitting tribute.
