That could be a fun video game. Give me an idea for a project this winter.

/ fun fact: the ball gag did not originate as a fetish. It was originally used by couples with children who couldn't keep themselves quiet during fun time.

Police say they found Matthias clutching a shotgun outside his house, claiming he was trying to shoot two small clowns.

It's the small ones you really have to beware. They're quick, feral and near impossible to target.

Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around,
One who can't move,
Where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns

I guess I know now that the one who keeps tearing around refers to the shooter, and one who can't move must be the neighbor if he gets shot.

morg: Five years? There's gotta be some more to this story.

It's all right there in the second paragraph: "Reading police didn't find anyone inside of 35-year-old Nathan Matthias' second-floor apartment, and say the shooting put his first-floor neighbor in danger. The Reading Eagle reports he was sentenced Monday to 22 months to five years in state prison after pleading guilty in July to discharging a firearm and to an unrelated drunk driving charge."

Two to Five years total for endangering his neighbor and a bunch of others on the road in a separate incident. He got off easy.
