hellbob and I own several swords. We should start carrying them for protection!
Yes, there was someone attacked with a sword here in Mpls night before last. It was a guy defending himself against guys who broke into his apartment to rob him.
The Strib had the most informative article of the ones I read: http://www.startribune.com/467/story/604366.html
And don't even get me started on the grammatical errors and just plain wrong words in the first few pages of the Kare 11 article! C'mon, you are writing what is essentially just a couple column inches and NO ONE proof reads it?
"It was just are 3:30 Wednesday morning"
"grabbed his roommates sword" Does someone have an extra apostrophe, because there's one missing here!
"His feisty attack send the invaders running"
Really professional there, Kare11!
If you want to see pictures of the blood-spattered hallway walls (I don't believe any of the news organizations got inside the building) you can see them at http://www.birdchick.com/blog.html and http://www.councilofdoomtheatre.com/williamstiteler/2006/08/real-horror-show.html as well as get first person accounts of two building residents who didn't know what had happened until the following morning.
