The Speech John Murtha Should Give
Letter from Drunky MacScotchy - Have you tried these scotches?

What happens when you try to rob a former Marine?

Banter in Atlanter has the story about a waiter, and former Marine, who was cornered by five robbers (one with a shotgun and another with a .380):

...One more tip, if you pull your shotgun on a Marine and he shows you his war face you should probably pack it up and call it night...

Be sure to check it out.  Tantor sends a follow up on the story.

...Stephens said Autry had left his job at the Jocks & Jills restaurant in Midtown and was walking along Penn Avenue when a blue Cadillac pulled alongside and three men, one armed with a shotgun, and the woman jumped from the car.

"This group had robbed two men on Piedmont earlier Monday night, taking a video camera and a cellphone," Stephens said.

"Autry takes off running, and they chase him. During the chase, Autry's trying to get into his backpack to get a pocket knife, which slows him down," Stephens said.

During the chase, Autry repeatedly yelled "fire,  fire," which Stephens said attracted nearby residents' attention.

Grabbing the knife from his backpack, Autry managed to kick the shotgun from the man's hands and stabbed the woman in the chest, fatally wounding her. Stephens said. In the melee, Autry also stabbed one of the male suspects. Another suspect attempted to shoot Autry with a .380 pistol, which misfired, Stephens said.

The suspects ran back to the Cadillac and drove to Atlanta Medical Center, where police arrested them. The young woman, "about two weeks pregnant," was pronounced dead at the hospital, Stephens said. The wounded suspect is in critical condition...

Autry will not be charged.
