SayUncle linked to a developing story on a home invasion in south Knoxville (for those not knowledgeable about the K-town metro area, that's the "You Can't Get There From Here" part of town.)
It seems that a pair of ne'er-do-wells busted up into a house, scuffling with the husband and shooting him, before the missus scooped up a .357 and rather comprehensively aired one of the goblins out, causing the other to flee into the night.
One sentence in the story stood out to me:
Roseholme Cottage does not have a regular storm door. It has an ornamental-looking-but-extremely-sturdy barred door, set into a beefy frame. This door opens outward. It is not going to get "kicked in". This makes me a lot happier when answering the door.
