Just noticed this local news story. So, is it really a better mouse trap or is the smoke from all the fires just making people a bit crazy around here?

"A Potter Valley woman wounded herself and a man July 3 while attempting to kill mice with a .44-caliber Magnum revolver, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office."

Entire story: Woman tries to kill mice, shoots self -- The Press Democrat

So, let's see now... I've been having some problems with my Vista computer... "Hey honey, do you know where I left the 44 magnum?"

That's what you get when you bring a gun to a mice fight.

My apologies to Sean Connery (and rebols in general).

The woeful lack of knowledge these days!

Doesn't this woman know that "The 2nd mouse gets the cheese!"

(Use an Acme mousetrap - just add mouse)

Perhaps she was just trying to re-enact the scene from "Total Recall" that ends with Richter's pursuers shooting at the rats which have Quaid's removed tracking device attached -- the one that ends with the damaged briefcase reciting its recording "...Get your a$$ to Mars!....Get your a$$ to Mars....Get..", etc.
