Subject: Funeral Director Shooting Article
I am very disappointed in the headline you chose regarding the attack on Funeral
Director John Harmon III.
Exchange of bullets hospitalizes teen
Hit by return fire, he is in serious condition. A funeral home owner shot in
the shoulder goes to work the next day.

From the main headline you would think it is
TWO thugs fighting it out, rather than a law-abiding citizen protecting his life
and property against a vicious mugger. Heck, you could even think that the
law-abiding citizen tried to mug the teen.
Here is my suggestion for a more honest and
Armed Citizen protects own life -
illegally armed mugger hospitalized
or, try this....
Citizen protects life, property with legal
Armed mugger shot by Armed Citizen -
Citizen returns to work, mugger in hospital
even this is better...
Cowardly teen attacks citizen - teen
hospitalized after citizen protects himself
