Sixth Law of the Dinosaur: Rebuttal or Confirmation?

As is universally known (to anyone who reads my sidebar) the Sixth Law of the Dinosaur reads as follows:
Trauma survival is inversely related to the patient's value to society.
Still occupying a fair amount of column space and air time in the print and broadcast media respectively is the near miraculous survival of New Jersey Governor John Corzine from his recent unscheduled meeting with a guardrail on the Garden State Parkway, which occurred without his seatbelt in attendance. Not only did the 60-year-old governor survive, but to date (knock wood) his recovery has been amazingly rapid and complication-free.

At first blush, this phenomenon would appear to conflict with the Sixth Law.

Then again, he is a politician.
