I'm reasonably sure that in Thomas' view, those who cannot be bothered
to carefully observe bridges and examine the engineering diagrams
beforehand should not be walking on them, and deserve whatever happens
if they willy-nilly walk out on an alleged "bridge" only to later
discover it is in fact not a bridge, but a squirrel.  Failure to check
the attendance and attention patterns of all those involved in
designing and implementing the bridge is merely a particular form of
the lack of attention which unfortunately pervades our society.
