    LOL @ Dan. That’s what I thought when I first heard the name “Wasserman” as well!

    As Jane always used to say when Tarzan wanted to know just where in the hell Boy came from: C’est la gorilla!

    Best thing to do with a lamb shoulder chop? Pass it by for a lamb shank, loin lamb chop or buy a leg a lamb, bone it and get four or more meals out of it and use the bones for split pea with lamb soup.

    So Minnesota is about to send the Governor a bill to “allow” use of a firearm for defense. Which will presumably mean a four-foot-seven-inch woman confronted by a knife-wielding six-four rapist will not be charged with murder for using a gun instead of a knife: “excessive force” goes back to being a discretionary charge, not a by-the-book slam-dunk prosecution.

    But…

    “This bill provides a loophole for a defense of what I would call cold-blooded murder,” said Champlin Police Chief David Kolb of the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association.

    No you silly person. If you think it was murder, make the charge and persuade the prosecutors to take it to court. But it is not murder just because a gun was used. That particular railroad is going out of business.

    Deadly force OK anywhere
