Another tragic example of the 'empowering' effect of owning guns for self-defence

Unconfirmed media reports this morning are suggesting an unimaginable human tragedy - that legendary South African athlete Oscar Pistorius shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp dead after mistaking her for an intruder.

If this turns out to be true, I await with baited breath Mr Kevin Baker's latest convoluted explanation of how, contrary to appearances, having a boyfriend who possessed guns for defensive purposes made Ms Steenkamp's life safer.

I'm sure that there will be a perfectly simple explanation that, had she also had a gun, then the principle of mutually assured annihilation would have pertained.

It seems it's not true. He's been arrested and charged with murder. It appears they had been having rows.

And "bated" is a contraction of "abated". There isn't an i in it.

Thankyou, Rolfe. Although I think on a point of principle I might leave the spelling mistake as it is. This is beginning to feel like Primary 6 all over again...

I knew waht you meant with baited James. Sometimes I think it's just plain snobbery to point out such trivial matters.
