So I'm down in Gulf Shores, watching today's local news on a Mobile, AL station. The lead piece was about the Mayor of Mobile coming home and catching a burglar in his garage. The Mayor evidently was ready to take care of business -- according to the report, he pulled his pistol and held the criminal until police arrived.
Gotta wonder why the Mayor had to take care of business himself. After all, we keep being told that important public figures need police protection.
But more interestingly, the news was reported in an absolutely ordinary, non-hysterical manner. It was sort of like people down here think it's normal for others to be carrying, and protecting themselves and their property. Imagine that...
