    Except for the first line of the story. this was pretty good coverage, if you ask me.

    I love happy endings like that. Wonder what she used?

    I wonder if the Sun Herald style book includes this usage of the word "upside."

    Thank you grandma.

    There's always a soft spot in everyone's heart for a grandma. Glad to hear one go the right way. Reading this article is going to make me push my wife to attain her CCW permit soon. As the man in the incident, I realize I will be the primary target of any surprise assault or gunfire long before my wife.

    However, I'm going to have to get a lot of ammo for her to practice. She can't hit a target 50% of the time at 20 feet.

    Where I came from (northern Indiana) we would have said 'alongside the head'. But I like 'upside the head'. It has a nice ring to it. :)

    Oops. That one fooled me, too and I almost wrote the editor. It was a quote.

    He's in pretty deep doo-doo for his jailors' unfortunate habits of beating prisoners to death.

    Again, read the story. It's a quote. Or are you guys making a statement on the reading comprehension in your necks of the woods? J/K, as I said, I almost fell for it also.

    Believe me, I don't like defending the Herald.

    Malone, I'm missing something. I've read the first line a couple of times and don't see what is objectionable about it. Enlighten me?

    I am sorry this couple had to go through this, and I am grateful they survived.

    Only hits counts.

    I suggest folks read again the account.
    Pay close attention to not only how the perp was out of prison for armed robbery, meaning he is not supposed to have a firearm but did. The mention of an accomplance.

    Watched or followed home from a business - means this couple was cased.
    The mindset of this couple, especially the lady to have a personal weapon also the mindset, the knowledge of legal factors in the use of firearm to defend her husband and self.

    There is more to responsible firearm ownership than firearms - me

    Think like a criminal , plan and train accordingly.

    Around here, the comment " he fetched him one upside the head" would not be noticed as unusual.

    2 years for armed robbery? WHAT THE HELL? I would have given him 10 or better if I were a judge.
