My grandfather was a timekeeper for the men who worked on building the Highland tower. He "borrowed" a brick from construction site that my family used as a doorstop at our house on Tuscarora Ave. in St. Paul. Nice memories of a different age.

"...Better...if she ran with Denny Hecker." Nah, how about Jesse Ventura? There is no shoe size too big that cannot easily fit in either of their mouths.

It must get real interesting there at night.

You have an inspiring story and I have great respect for your willingness to share. I don't recall who said this but I think it's relevant: "The best is yet to come."

My reaction is anger when I hear of another report of another innocent person being killed by a gunman.
My reaction is fear when I see anyone in public wearing a gun who is not in a law-officer uniform
My reaction is sadness that we've gone another year after Sandy Hook without any progress in making our society safer - especially for our young students. In fact, it has gone the other way with significantly more guns in circulation.

He's not asserting a "defense" per se. He is trying to precisely communicate his state of mind at the time the events occurred - right or wrong. Exactly when he is he required to report?
