A woman died today when her parachute failed to open during
a demonstration of parachute saftey in Yosemite National
Park. There is irony involved in this. They say that 40% of
Americans do not understand the concept of irony. I hope
this clears things up for some of you.
The only other thing I can really say about this tragic event is that I hope
that the news article describing my death does not involve an onomatopeia like
"splat." Maybe "zap" or "pow" or even "sprong." But not splat.
