Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Texas woman shoots dead an armed home invader. A private citizen using a pistol for self-defense? That’s gonna mess up Penigma’s narrative, right there.
I think it was more Dog Gone’s narrative, although they shared some elements.
No mention of a medal. Surely some group should give her a medal?
“We, the members of the Podunk Booster Club, honor Mrs. Dorothy Smith for her courageous actions defending her home and her neighborhood, awarding her this Marksman Medal, a check for $357 which is her favorite caliber, and we invite her to ride in our car in the next parade.”
With a photo in the newspaper of her wearing the medal holding the enormous cardboard check, that could be a great PR move in certain areas of the state.
I like it.
