Dear Cecil,

I read your column about how cats seem to always land on their legs and then remembered another rumor that whenever a piece of bread falls it always lands buttered side down. I got to thinking that if we were to attach a piece of bread, buttered side up, onto the back of a cat, the cat would never touch the ground after being tossed out of a window. I'm about to go try this on my roommates' cat and will follow this message up with a report on the outcome. Wish me luck, because if I'm right, and this succeeds, I will not only have found a way to save all of those cats who keep plummeting to their death but possibly a new design application for hovercrafts.

Very seriously,

Glenn "straightjacket" Crider
