Some things are too good...
...to pass up. The following blurb appeared in the Sun., Sept. 6 edition of
The Harrisburg Patriot News.
"Man charged after cannon ball hits house.
Uniontown State police have charged a self-proclaimed Civil War buff with accidentally firing a 2-pound cannon ball through the window of a neighbor's home.
William Maser, 54, of Georges Twp. told WPXI-TV on Thursday that his hobby is re-creating Civil War cannons.
Maser said he was firing the cannon Wednesday night when the ball ricocheted and hit the house 400 yards away.
Police said no one was hurt by the cannon ball that slammed through a window and a wall before landing in a clothes closet.
WHAT'S NEXT? Maser is charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, and disorderly conduct."

Personally, I think the humiliation he will suffer at the hands of his buddies would suffice. With idiots like this out there, we should all be thankful that no one was hurt!
