...and yet it took four months for the Palo Alto Police Dept. and Palo Alto Building Inspection Dept. to report the death of a Palo Alto Building Inspector from a traumautic fall. No word yet from the City Manager who continues to issue a "no response" "no comment" answer to questions asked about this accident. What a pity.

Hopefully, this will be a warning to other parents who have kids. Sofas should be away from second story windows.
