Years ago I leaned on my friends balcony on 72nd St. and it gave way a little. Quite scary. On a high floor.

"A source on the scene provided a description of the railing, which appeared to be metal, and was bent and twisted, with a cigarette lighter still sitting nearby."
What an image.
Somehow, I see a new anti-smoking commercial coming our way.

This just a case of natural selection. Even rich yuppies on 72nd floor can get it just like that. Smoking against a railing on the 72nd floor, maybe she did us a favor and just balanced the universe.
