I Don’t Care If He Falls

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Wallenda walking over Niagara "No Falls."

It’s his choice. On Sunday Nik Wallenda will take a skywalk over a river near the Grand Canyon.  The wire will be higher than the Empire State Building.  It will take him 20- to 30- minutes to go from one side to the other – not counting commercials on ABC.

Let’s be honest here, if there was NO chance the nitwit will take the short way down and paint the rocks, who would watch?  Events like this excite peoples’ primitive blood lust – a drive best left undisturbed.

I don’t want the guy to take a swan dive into eternity but it would bother me less than a fart in a firestorm.
