Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Office fave Jenna Fischer fractured her back in four places after a fall down a marble staircase. Recovery is expected to take four to six weeks. Screen Jam wishes her the absolute best.

That one hurt. A LOT. I'll never understand why it didn't get another season.
Carnivale was a great (I'm using the word "Great" here) show.
They don't say where this staircase was. Presumably people don't put marble staircases in buildings that aren't public, so it's quite likely that building inspectors had to sign off on everything.
I can't imagine that there are many building where workers have to use marble stairs as part of their job. Except for people who have a job cleaning marble staircases.
But people slip and fall a lot. And people wearing high heels are more prone to it.
Maybe SAG or AFTRA would complain, but I doubt that.
I slipped and fell in a stairwell at work because I went down it too quickly and it was raining outside and the stairwell was wet. I'm still not sure how I didn't break anything. I didn't do the full Scarlett O'Hara tumble, but more of an unceremonious fall on my butt, but somehow not having my head the ground, which kept me from big trouble.
In the same year, only 47 people died from being hit by lightning.
