    Police shot and killed the son of one of the Little Rock Nine, the group of blacks who integrated the city's schools in 1957.

    Police said they were called after neighbors saw Erin Eckford, 26, firing an assault rifle into the air Wednesday night. Police shot him with a bean bag round, then opened fire after he pointed the rifle at them, authorities said. He was struck six times, police spokesman Sgt. Terry Hastings said Thursday.

    Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.
