A man threatening to jump from a South Carolina bridge was coaxed off the ledge with a pizza, police say. The man parked his vehicle on a shoulder of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge at about 6:50 a.m.
This is what it’s all about. Why I write about pizza and prod people to tell me their secret pizza desires. No one wants to admit it, but pizza is really the one thing the universe has in common. It’s a great unifier. Some dough held together by cheese and brought to life with some red sauce. It’s the personification of life.
Glad to see this guy is okay. Hopefully the warmth of that pizza will remind him that life is too precious to throw away. Especially considering the amount of good pizza out there.
