David Carr Ran into Amanda Bynes in the Emergency Room

What are the odds? New York Times media reporter David Carr slipped in the rain on Thursday night and broke his arm in three places. In an odd twist of fate, Mr. Carr, while waiting to be treated at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Emergency Room, saw a be-wigged starlet in handcuffs who has become a tabloid fixture of late: Amanda Bynes.

Despite his injury, Mr. Carr, a prolific tweeter, naturally tweeted about the incident.

But despite the periodic tweets, one side effect of Mr. Carr’s injury: less tweets.

One can only imagine the faithful updates we would have received had Mr. Carr not broken his arm. But then again,  if he hadn’t broken his arm, he never would have ended up in the emergency room with Ms. Bynes.
