'You're still on the wire': Petit nears 70Weeks from his 70th birthday, and a few decades from his high-wire walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, world-famous French tightrope artist Philippe Petit continues to defy gravity. It's been a few minutes since Petit wrapped up his show on this sunny Saturday afternoon but his mind is still up there. American by adoption, he decided to stay permanently in the United States after his famed walk at the World Trade Center in New York in 1974 -- 400 meters above the ground. He still feels the call of the wire just as deeply.At the Glass House, as always, mischief-maker Petit is never content to simply walk on the wire.He lengthens his stride, then lies down, and then starts all over again, just like during his World Trade Center walk.
