Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


The Surgeon General tried to warn him.

Sooner or later, people will learn their lesson about cigarettes:

Man asking for cigarettes arrested for harassment

Well, other than the crazy guy running around shirtless, it sounds like everyone else did the right thing in this story.  I think being confronted by a crazy shirtless guy who wants to beat you up for not giving him a cigarette is a perfectly valid reason for drawing your pistol.  The good part is that the story doesn't make a big deal about it...nothing about brandishing charges or anything.

Also, good on the responding officers who didn't just drop the guy when he came running out with a shiney object in his hands shouting 'freeze'...that would have to be a tough situation to show restraint in.

  1. When I was a young adolescent, I was a pro-wrestling fan. There was an article in one of the magazines I read at the time on the murder of former wrestler Dino Bravo, who was apparently involved in the black market for cigarettes in Canada. Key line: See, kids, cigarettes will kill you!
