I remember the founder of Health Tex Sig Isaacs used to tell this story about when he first came to America their was a sign on the wall at Ellis Island that said fine for smoking. He thought it meant ok. I used to work in the garment industry in downtown Los Angeles in the late 70's and i remember getting to work bright and early one morning to watch this guy commit suicide by doing a swan dive off the California Mart. He landed on a J.C. Penney buyer. Both were killed instantly. The jumper turned out to be one of Sig's cutters.
