Psssst...fellas...we're grateful for your service. But weren't you trained to fire at foreigners?

This from the Belleville News-Democrat this morning:
A 57-year-old Centreville man is in police custody for allegedly shooting a 55-year-old man in the leg.... [Assistant Police Chief James] Mister said the two men, who had merely spoke in passing, quarreled over which branch of the U.S. armed forces was better.

"Both men are former military men," Mister said.
Daily RFT hears that golf can be very relaxing.
