Stan "the Man" Musial dies

It's been nearly two weeks since the great Stan Musial passed away at 92. Here's a link to read about the great St. Louis Cardinal: clickety-click I remember one story told on the radio about Musial. When he was in his seventies, he was being interviewed by a well-known sports caster. Part of the interview went something like this:

Interviewer: Stan could you still hit .350 against the pitchers of today?
Musial: Well maybe not .350. It would be tough.
Interviewer: Well, why would it?
Musial: Well, geez, I'm 75 years old.

Here's to a great ball player, and great American. R.I.P., Stan.

Why you might need a gun with a large clip

Many liberal politicians are saying things like "no one needs a twenty round clip to stop a burglar", or "who needs a thirty round clip to go hunting?". Perhaps they haven't heard of this incident in which five people invaded someone's home. Presumably in such a situation, the invaders aren't going to stand there in a straight line while you plug away at them with your six-shooter. They will be diving behind things, spreading out, looking for cover, perhaps firing back. You, with your six-shooter revolver will have emptied it and perhaps wounded one or two of them, because you're likely not going to be calm, and you're probably not going to hit a moving target with the first shot. It may take two or three or even more shots to get one of them. Now, hopefully, once you pull out your gun, they high-tail it out of there, but what if they don't? Would you want to face them with a six-load revolver, or a thirty round semi-auto? You make the call.
