Is Iowa trying to be the new Wisconsin?

That's the question I ask myself after reading this story:

Pacemaker attack stuns townspeople

The Delaware County Sheriff's Office said the younger Fierstine hit his father with a flashlight and a piece of firewood late Saturday night, then attacked him with a pocket knife.

He cut a 6-inch gash in the older man's chest and removed the pacemaker, leaving an opening 3/4-of-an-inch wide, according to search warrants.

When Delaware County sheriff's deputies arrived, wires were protruding from Charles Fierstine's chest.
Alcohol was involved.

This is what happens when you don't allow free and open access to pacemakers for everybody. Decriminalize pacemakers, I say!

When pacemakers are outlawed, only outlaws will have pacemakers.

Can you put a price on pace?

They say it was a pacemaker, but this guy was really destroying a Terminator.

Why am I laughing so hard. I think it had something to do with that last sentence. When are we going to read of some stoner doing something as awesomely awesome as that. It was his son you say? I'm guessing he probably had it coming.

Oh yea, I see. Your google ad is for a free sex offender search. Could be worse.

This story reminds me of Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice" for some reason...
