Annals of personal responsibility



Thomas Galloway walked into a bar. And, yes, this is the beginning of a joke, or at least a joke of a lawsuit. Galloway had brought a gun with him into the New Kensington, PA bar "Envy"—but so had another patron. The two found themselves in a gunfight, and Galloway spent five days in a hospital recovering from his wounds before he was convicted for being a felon in illegal possession of a weapon. This was, Galloway said, the bar's fault for not searching its patrons for weapons. Thankfully, a federal court threw out the case; at least it was pro se. [Valley News Dispatch; AP/law.com]
