a heartwarming story

You have no idea how much pleasure I take in the story of the 93-year-old man who, after being beaten senseless in his own home by a robber, came to, took out a gun, and shot the robber in the throat. The linked article notes that the robber was able to speak, and he told police: "I got what I deserved."

Perhaps these two gentlemen can meet and strike up a friendship after the dust settles.

And you'll note that the 93-year-old codger was an Arkansawyer.

I take pride in that fact.

(The attacker must have been from out-of-state, however.)

It's also quite heartwarming to see that the old man will not be prosecuted for defending himself in his own home.

At least the robber has some grasp on reality. Let's hope he survives this and mends his ways.
