Thoed in a friendly manner, of course
This story will immediately call to mind this story, as only Joe L. Barbee can tell it. But a good read, too: The Story of Soldier Jones at the Adair County Fairgrounds
I imagine a recent shooting inspired as many tongue-wagging, truth-devoid blovations -- full speed ahead and damn the facts! -- as did the Great Robbery at First National Bank in Russell Springs, 1971. (Where, oh where. is Pete Walker when we need him??)
Not to defend the shooter or to damn the shootee, but perhaps the former pulled the trigger in a manner a la my youngest uncle.
He, in a fit of pique, threw a knife at my father and before the knife struck home (my father's forehead), Unc realized his ass was grass and his brother a raging lawn mower run amok. In that brief instant between act and retribution, he uttered my all-time favorite amelioration defense: "But I thoed [threw] it a friendly sort of way!"
Taking that into consideration, my father proceeded to soundly whup his little brother, doing so in a friendly sort of way, of course. Sign me, intrepid before all, "Anon."
