Willie Brown said he thought he was back in a foxhole in Korea on Thursday morning when a burglar stood at the door to Brown's bedroom.
"He said, 'I got a knife, don't move,'" Brown recalled.
"I reached behind my back and whipped my gun from under my pillow and said, 'Take this .38,' and I blasted him."
The man, wounded, uttered "Whoops," Brown said, and fled down the stairs. Brown pursued, and fired a second shot, striking the intruder as he jumped through a broken window.
That's the kind of old guy we need in the Senate.
(HT: My wife, DeoDuce, told me about the old guy in St. Louis! I didn't mention it before because I feel that we're so at one with each other that it wasn't necessary.)
