A better link to the 72 yr-old Mrs. Cooper, including an interview & excerpts from the 911 call. Heartwarming.

Given all the caterwauling from those who are "outraged" at the lawsuit, one would expect these sheriffs to be recall targets. Evidently 'outrage' ≠ putting one's money where one's mouth is.

72 yr-old grandmother squeezes off a round from her .357 to chase off an intruder trying to break in, despite the noisy Rottweiler trying to convince him otherwise. But there's no reason for a law-abiding citizen (especially a woman) to be armed, according to Robert.

Yes. Let's regulate the use of squirt guns. Because the great unwashed can't be relied upon to deploy them responsibly. Ye gods.

Mark nailed it. People complaining about how the principals may feel about the media coverage are, in fact, entirely unaware of the principals' perspective and are only projecting their own irritation onto their pet soapbox. Absent a statement from Mr. Kirlan (who has other things on his mind, I'm sure), this caterwauling is arrogant and self-centered in the extreme. I'm content to let the family speak for itself. And whether they choose to or not, it's their business and nobody else's.

If this is indicative of the problems & concerns that motivate you to write a letter to the editor, you must lead a charmed life. My hat's off to you.

Stuart

You come across as remarkably thin skinned, with all due respect. You seem to be unclear regarding the purpose of the Pilot's "Our View" pieces. You might consider looking up the definition of 'editorial' and reacquaint yourself with its meaning.

If you believe Mr. Rummel's proposal to be "worthy of legitimate consideration", then defend it on its merits. Make an effort to illustrate how the Pilot's position is off base. All you've done is complain that anyone would presume to criticize Mr. Rummel's ridiculous imitative.

Brian Kotowski 1 year, 6 months ago on Courtney Hill: Insensitive coverage

What does being a small town have to do with anything? Is there a population threshold that would make it permissible to report the news, and beneath which a media blackout should be imposed? If our own recent marathon had been bombed, would it have been inappropriate to report on it because we're a "small town"? There are pros and cons to living in a free society. One of the cons may be that horrific tragedies like this one are newsworthy.
