MIACHAEL CASE BLOWS AWAY HIS IBM

By CBR Staff Writer

Better not let the National Rifle Association hear about this one – if it is an American’s inalienable right under the constitution to dispatch two game wardens, seven hunters, not to mention the cow and explain afterwards that they seemed to be a threat, how much more must it be a constitutional right to send a recalcitrant IBM Personal to Kingdom Come with a whiff or two of grapeshot? Yet, reports Newsbytes, when Michael Case of Gillette, New Jersey blew away his IBM and its Princeton Graphics monitor with an Israeli Arms Desert Eagle .44 pistol after he challenged the pesky thing to make his day, the Boys in Blue weren’t at all amused, booked him, and only let him go home after he coughed up $2,500 for his bail.
