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..." " 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)

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.
