    owners in NYC handing out shoes to people fleeing the Twin Towers destruction on 9/11 and that was an urban setting.

    There are dangerous people everywhere urban or rural, but I've been lucky for 61 years so far, even when I got purse-snatched in San Antonio. My husband chased after they guys shouting, "Stop, thief!" like someone out of Oliver Twist until the guy threw my purse down and ran off. They shouldn't have picked a couple that had a member training for a marathon!

      who was trying to kidnap a girl.

      Sent him to the hospital and then to jail.

      And intervened in a similar situation about a year ago, just outside my work. Guy choking a girl at a bus stop. Wuss.

      Bad people exist.

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

      •  It doesn't hurt to have done a few (0+ / 0-)

        hours working a light bag. Know how to get balance and deliver a good punch. That's all you need.

        Learn how to deliver a kick and you're thinking about killing someone. That's too much power. Hard to control.

        Hit good. Don't swing hard.

        These events have declined steadily, even in New York, as we have fewer and fewer alcohol babies and less lead poisoning -- fewer out-of-control adult males, looking for fights.

        The 1970s were insane.
