I would say Xtra baked, JAdams, as I remeber was on the other side of Cance for someone to jump off JA and land on Pierpont would be physically impossible unless they were indeed flying and I hardly think J P Morgans daughter would have been a secretary/administrator at umass if she even worked at all!
