As a footnote to our recent family tragedy, people have been coming up to me and telling me how lucky my brother-in-law was.
He's taken two bullets in the shoulders and one across the back and you think that's lucky?!
NO, dear reader, because if he was lucky he wouldn't have been shot at in the first place. He was fortunate that the bullets didn't puncture a lung or hit him in the face, but he certainly wasn't lucky that night.
Doubtless the same people think that Yoko Ono was lucky because she didn't get shot as well as John Lennon.
These people's idea of good luck is being knocked down by an ambulance.
