August 24, 1967
There are golden fish falling from the
sky. Some people try to cat-
But these fish are plummeting to the
Earth at 213 mph. They could – and
have – killed a man (many in fact).
New York is now the “city of gold.”
I heard of an inci-
dent like this a few years
back, before I moved here. It was
raining silver-coated dragonflies. The
aftermath was totaled cars and totaled people.
A fish just fell through my window because
the rain was angled just so.
I put it in some water.
