Death plunge

THE caption ''Never felt better'' below a photograph of Roman Tam smoking a cigarette (''Roman conquers teenage hearts'', South China Morning Post, April 30), reminds me of the following story.

A man jumped off a 70th floor skyscraper. As he was falling down past the 50th floor, another man in an office saw him falling past the window, and cried out ''How are you doing?''. The man replied ''so far, so good''.
