Tightrope walker Nik Wallenda speaks during a news conference in Niagara Falls, N.Y., Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2011. The daredevil and his technical team met with emergency responders and others Wednesday to talk about his proposed high-wire walk over the falls. Wallenda has the support of lawmakers and tourism officials on the U.S. side of the border, but he's still got to win over parks officials in Canada. (AP Photo/David Duprey) less
