Keith Richards Kills Orchid With Secondhand Smoke
An executive at the New York Public Library claims that Keith Richards killed her plant by smoking near it.
The plant, an orchid, died a few days after Richards gave a talk at the library on October 29 about his recent memoir, Life.

Marie d’Origny, deputy director of the library’s Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers, said the guitarist was in her office before his talk. Even though the building is officially smoke-free, he lit up in her office anyway.
