Swords at Dawn
Only in our great state of SC would a break in result in a sword fight. I don't make a habit of reposting news stories, but this one was too good to pass up. Enjoy your weekend, kids. Let me know what you're up to in the comments section.
(Hilton Head Island-AP) March 2, 2007 - Beaufort County sheriff's deputies say a man carrying a three-foot sword apparently met his match when he broke into his ex-girlfriend's apartment.
Deputies say her roommate grabbed his own sword and cut the intruder Thursday afternoon.
Captain Toby McSwain says 18-year-old Elvis Javier Polanco went to the woman's home with a friend after they had been drinking.
McSwain says Polanco broke a window and climbed in on his friend's shoulders to get inside.
Polanco has been charged with burglary and aggravated assault.
Polanco was confronted by Louis Delgado Hernandez, who disarmed the intruder while the ex-girlfriend called police.
Polanco was treated and released from a hospital.
No one will look down on you for reposting quality news items like that. I even have one to add: Boston Bomb Squad successfully destroyed another "suspicious device" last week. Turned out it was a traffic counter chained to a lamp post. Traffic people were not amused.

I hate you all.
