Lightening Never Strikes Twice . . . Or Does It?

In 1997, and I remember this, a lady was seriously injured in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Paradewhen the Cat in the Hat balloon hit a big street light and it went crashing to the ground - on her. Her name was Kathleen Caronna (which, incidentally, sounds like the name of our County Treasurer.) Anyway, this week a plane carrying Yankee's pitcher Cory Lidle crashed into an apartment in New York City. You know whose apartment that belonged to? Kathleen Caronna. Yep. Same one. (Source.)

I think if I was friends with her, I would have to stand really far away from her.

BUMMER!

I remember when the balloon fell on her - one of the "news shows" did a spot on her. I agree - time to move to the country. But wait... what about the snakes and the bears?? It is a crap shoot no matter how you cut it.
