HOT – Vernal Fall discussion on KGO today

 Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

A quick heads up. KGO Radio 810 am San Francisco will be having a discussion /call-in about the Vernal Fall deaths today at 3 pm.  If you subscribe to this blog, you’ll get this in time to listen and participate. I’ll summarize for the regular blog tonight.

3:10 UPDATE – I’m on the line now on hold….and Obama’s chat delayed it.  UPDATE – KGO just told me they are changing topics – will now discuss the debt issue.  AARRGGHH…So it may be rescheduled for Monday. Sorry.

    Maybe the immense size of a 317ft water fall was inadequate too…
    There were also people there who told them not to get in and to get back out of the water…maybe they didn’t say it as loudly or as forcefully as they should have. So should we hire someone to stand there and loudly, forcefully, tell people not to go in the water. Maybe that would work. (rolling my eyes..)
    But, on the other hand, you can’t blame the grieving family and friends for trying to find a way to deal with their grief. This may be part of their way. Trying to find an answer to WHY their usually smart children did something like this and supposedly prevent others from having the same fate.

    Check out the LATimes. The church has hired a consultant who is assessing the safety conditions at vernal. The initial reaction is that the railings and signs are too small and inadequate…. Lamo!

    Will this discussion be rescheduled on KGO today as planned?

      The KGO website does not give the talk topics for the Gil Gross show from 2-4 today. I dunno. I bet the Debt thing, Norway and Amy Winehouse will dominate. I forgot to bring my cell phone so it’s up to you to call in.

    You can’t fix stupid can you? I mean… No disrespect to those people or there families but people need to realize that warning signs and guard rails are to be taken seriously!!
