    Thanks to quick but cautious work by his colleagues and medical responders, 30 stitches and an hour of surgery, a day after the accident Valentine was recovering in stable condition at a Pennsylvania hospital.....

    He said 'it could have been a lot worse, someone's looking out for me.' I guess he's talking about an angel, or higher spirit. Whenever I hear that, I wonder, where was the guy that was supposed to be looking out for him before the chainsaw hit his neck? How about a heads up: you're about to get your noggin cut off?
