Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.
--Robert Louis Stevenson
Unless, of course, it leads to sword play:
An Indianapolis man died yesterday, after being involved in a swordfight with the grandson of a woman who was killed when she tried to intervene in the fight.
You just can't make up stuff like this.
A 39 year old got into an argument with a 69-year old that escalated when one of the men grabbed a sword, prompting the other man to also brandish a sword.
Swashbucklers in the living room, avast ye!
And you know what’s going to happen next: Bans across the land on swords. I can see the bumperstickers now: "Swords don’t kill people…people kill people." And, "you can have my sword when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers..." or just ease it out of my scabbard when I'm sleeping.
Remember, swords, cutlasses, and daggers are protected under the 2nd Amendment. Just don’t try to get on a plane with a pair of nailclippers or tweezers, though.
Ix-nay on the ox-cutter-bay’s, too.
