I just read this article about NJ Governor Jon Corzine:
He wasn't wearing a seatbelt and had substantial physical damage. Buckle up everyone! Do it for your own life safety!
The article ends with this paragraph, hmm...
Corzine was the third straight New Jersey governor to break a leg while in office. James E. McGreevey broke his left leg in 2002 during a nighttime walk on the beach, and Christie Whitman broke her right leg while skiing in the Swiss Alps in 1999.
