Crossing Bridges – Civic Duty

My recent post, “Crossing Bridges,” dealt with an encounter I had with some local Bridge Police after a photography session on the Tacony-Palmrya Bridge. The encounter was largely positive, as the officers professionally responded to a 911 call, but during our conversation some incorrect information about “what Homeland Security says” was passed on.
