    We were talking about this guy a few months ago after 9/11, remembering him walking the line between the towers.

    He was on Letterman last night, quite a performance given the rainy conditions.

    One of my co-workers is looking for a picture of Petite walking the towers, anyone have a picture or video link?

    There was a great episode of Nightline just about him and his highwire feat right around the anniversary of 9/11. They showed lots of footage I'd never seen before. I think you can order copies of the show, though I have no idea what ABC charge.
