"Lead neurosurgeon on the case, Dr G Alexander West, admitted in a report in the Journal of Neurosurgery that "no-one before is known to have survived after intentionally firing so many foreign objects into the head"

Yay OHSU. . .

Perhaps he only used finishing brads (which are anywhere from 1.25" to 2" in length w/ no real head on them), those aren't like say nails from framing nailer (2"-4" THICK nails w/ heads)... which really could kill him. *sigh* I consider my framing nailer a weapon and treat it as such.

funny, we also made the news for new seasons and avian-flu preparedness the other day, and did you read the story where my haunts (hair of the dog brewery and the tugboat brewery) got rave reviews in the ny times?

or the recent npr segment on our new micro-distillery market that's sweeping the nation.

hmph!
