A thought for the day

I still see my hands coming off the railing. [...] I instantly realized that everything in my life that I’d thought was unfixable was totally fixable—except for having just jumped.

—Ken Baldwin, who survived jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge

(From an article in the New Yorker referred to by author Nick Hornsby in an interview I heard yesterday. The article notes that survivors “often regret their decision in midair, if not before.” One suspects the regret rate is no lower for those who don’t survive.)
