The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." "...it is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32) akakyakakyevich@gmail.com

JUST WONDERING: A gun safety demonstration ended in failure and more than a little personal discomfiture the other day when a man demonstrating how to safely use a pistol managed to shoot himself in the leg. I suppose that I am not alone in finding this situation more than a little ironic. What gives the situation a special piquancy is that the gentleman with the hole in his leg is the local coroner. If the man died of the wound, which I understand is not likely at the time of this writing, his confreres in the forensic pathology biz could enter, under cause of death, self-induced terminal embarrassment.
