I was out of town and catching all my news by way of a hand-held device. Something came across that made me think of this:
Room service: Room service!
Guest: Yes, is this room service?
Room service: Yes, sir. It is.
Guest: Can you send up an order of the pumpkin pie?
Room service: Yes, sir. Coming right up.
Guest: And a bottle of red wine. Do you have Château Oran pinot noir 2011?
Room service: Yes sir. Should I add a bottle?
Guest: Yes. That will be just wonderful.
Room service: Anything else, sir?
Guest: While you’re at it, could you please bring up 200,000 rounds of 5.56 NATO – 62 Grain Lake City M855 Ball FMJ – Federal American Eagle?
But that’s not this week’s story. This week’s story is about how the National Rifle Association stands guard over the Second Amendment, protecting your right to defend yourself and your self esteem:
Police are on the hunt for a Houston man accused of shooting a homeless man in the leg.
Jamin Stocker, 33, is accused of firing at the 50-year-old man from the balcony of the townhome in a Midtown neighborhood where friction has been growing between homeowners and residents of a burgeoning homeless encampment nearby.
Stocker, however, was apparently not just another frustrated homeowner. Neighbors said he had been living in the home, which went into foreclosure in 2008 but appeared to have reverted to the previous owner last month.
Well, this was definitely a case where an armed response meant the difference between life and life with some loss of dignity. Keep on keeping on, NRA supporters.
