Are you kidding?

This was up on Alicublog

ANOTHER STIRRING DEFENSE OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT. John Scalzi's wife *Krissy was in a bar and some drunk kept bothering her. When the guy decided pawing her was a better way to get her attention, she jacked him up against the wall and demanded a little respect.

Dr. Mrs. Ole Perfesser (Mrs. Glenn Reynolds) is outraged:
This regressive behavior is typical of the violent youth I see who have so little impulse control that they beat someone up for "dissing them." I would hope a grown woman of Krissy's obvious intelligence would have more sense than that. But no. She decides that a man in an open public place just trying to touch her warranted shoving him against a wall and putting her hand to his throat.
I guess what Krissy should have done is pulled a gun on the guy. The good Doctor could have helped her out with the hardware.

That's the Knoxville way, I guess. In Bradford, Ohio, it would appear, as in New York (though you might not think so if you get all your information about us from TV cop shows), things are handled different.

UPDATE. *Spelling error fixed, thanks to the self-correcting power of the blogosphere.

UPDATE II. "Why is it that lefty bloggers can never understand the difference between self-defense and a bar room brawl?" We're always making that mistake, aren't we? At least, that's what I infer by all the fellows yelling "Death to Bush!" at the bar room brawls in which I regularly participate.

Gee, I didn't know Instacracker was pussywhipped as well. I don't know what they do in Knoxville's elite circles, but if you try that shit in a bar in New York an assbeating usually follows. Drooling drunk over a woman is one thing. God help the man stupid enough to touch her in a bar full of guys. If you're lucky, some of them will be off-duty cops and escort you out quietly. If not, well, all hell could break loose. Because violating a woman's personal space is a no-no

The women I know would have cracked a bottle over his fucking head.

Mrs. Scalzi reacted with admirable restraint. Mrs. Reynolds has simply adapted to having an all talk, do nothing husband.
