Philippe Petit

Man on Wire

French tight-rope artist and Shokan resident Philippe Petit is scheduled to be on Fox Business' Scoreboard with David Asman tonight at 7 p.m. , because, you know, when you want good financial advice about the worrisome state of the economy, you want to know from the guy who did a high-wire walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City in 1974.

I'm not posting the link because you're not going to listen to it anyway (and because I don't have it).

On Saturday, Petit will be more appropriate featured on the NPR weekly news quiz, "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" which can be heard locally on WAMC-FM, if the station actually finishes its never-ending fundraiser.

Fortunately, "Wait Wait" also is online.
