The victim says:
“What the hell was that?!?” she said. It took me a half a second to realize that my gun had just gone off…on my hip…in its holster.
My wife and I had just finished breakfast at our favorite café and got into the car.
Me being the passenger, I rotated my torso to the left to fasten my seatbelt like I always do. When I straightened again, my Glock 19 discharged, blowing a 9mm hole through my pants, underwear, the leather seat and bottom of the car’s door frame.

Frank W. James notes the nuclear power hysteria emanating from the Japanese debacle seems to be generated by a cadre of anonymous commentators. CLICK LINK HERE
I am not sure if I qualify as hysterical enough or anonymous enough for Mr. James purpose but I certainly number myself as among those who always believed nuclear power was essentially a niche technology most useful in limited applications.
Send an aircraft carrier around the world three or four times without refueling? Nuclear is definitely the way to go.
Go under a polar ice cap in a submarine? Nuclear is clearly the technology of choice.
Travel to Pluto and beyond with a robot satellite? Definitely only the best onboard nuclear power plant will do.
But it is doubtful even the perfection of the holy grail of “cold fusion” will ever efficiently power our vehicles- planes, trains or automobiles.
Certainly land based nuclear fission power plants along with their eco-wacko cousins-wind turbine farms- share one mutual fatal flaw: they are central command-and-control facilities dependent on a small corps of highly trained, highly paid technicians whose main goal in life is to make sure you get a bill every month for their service.
Credit where credit is due. Real hunting – two Chicago Tribune reporters take to the field and gun hunt their own venison.
They quickly understood the observation hunters have made for many years, to wit: Hunting is the most natural, organic, “sustainable” way to eat meat.
After several trips into the woods with no success, one reporter nevertheless volunteers to help skin, clean and butcher another hunter’s deer.
Yes, some would consider the video content graphic and may not wish to watch.
