want to hear a nice politician story?

Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher is a smooth-talking lawmaker — a talent that came in handy this week when the San Diego Republican persuaded a man not to hang himself on a downtown Sacramento bike bridge over the American River.

The Sacramento Police Department confirmed Thursday that two passers-by intervened Wednesday after spotting the man with one end of a rope tied around his neck and the other around a bikeway commonly known as the "Pipe Bridge" in northern Sacramento near North 18th Street. Their names were not immediately available.
