    The man just needed a decent lawyer. Think about it, Robert Shapiro could have presented the assault weapon to the jury and got him off. If there’s a pun there, I didn’t mean it. Outrageous!

    Obviously BDN has no sense of humor. Loads of comments have disappeared. Hey, BDN, if you’re so politically correct that you delete quotes from Blazing Saddles, why report the story at all?

      They were off topic. Perhaps you need to get familiar with the guidelines and the fact this is a family paper and the posts that were removed violated the guidelines.

      Don’t insult one another or the subjects of BDN stories.

      “‘excuse me while I whip this out”
      How’s that. I’m late this thread as I just woke and and am taking a few minutes before I get ready for work. Didn’t see what the quote was on here but i am guessing that the above is the one. Hope that this one helps. LOL

      Man that movie, One of the funniest ever made.

    Sorry to hear the old guy was upset and acted inappropriately.
    How wonderful that his wife met a special man from Pakistan, on line !!
    I hope her travels to that exciting country goes well.

      Hopefully her new boyfriend doesn’t ever get that upset with her if she dumps him. Her punishment would likely be far worse and he might be cheered by a crowd in Pakistan rather than jailed.
