In the Stomach, Huh?
A would-be robber burst into a Texas home and shot himself to death while trying to pull his gun out of the front of his pants. I suspect the newspaper was being "careful" when they described him as "shooting himself in the stomach." Pulling a gun out of the front of his pants would usually result in him shooting himself elsewhere, more likely. Shooting himself in the stomach, while not impossible, would be unlikely in this situation. But that's okay. We don't need to know what he blew off. He won't need it. He's dead. Criminals have been getting dumber and dumber lately. They've even got a weekly television show devoted to "dumb criminals." That takes a lot of stories. (Dallas News)
