I wish we didn’t live in a world where people try to slash their mother’s throat – or any of the other heinous, violent things people do to each other. But we do. “Victoria Mendez was driving home from work around 10:30 Sunday night when she saw her estranged son standing near the corner of 50th Drive and Windrose, just down the street from her house on the northern Glendale-Phoenix border,” azfamily.com reports. “‘I rolled my passenger window down and I said, ‘Hey Hakeem [Shawky, above], what’s up?

Defensive Gun Use of the Day: Son’s Act of Kindness Edition

Back in the day, my family summered on the Rhode Island coastline. When my father died, his ashes scattered in the bay in front of the house, my octogenarian mother lived there alone.
