I'm sure your question is rhetorical-nothing breaks itself. I'm no detective but something clearly damaged your stylus. I have, unfortunately, had this same experience but having both children and a pet, I had an idea what caused it. I don't know what your financial situation is but you will need to repair or replace the cartridge. Check with Grado to see if the stylus is replaceable. If not, you'll have to suck it up and buy a new one. Of course, you can check with Soundsmith to see if they can repair it, but I would be careful as a repaired stylus may, or may not sound the same as the original. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! Just my two cents. I'm sure you will get plenty of advice from other members.
