In other news...

My mom's cousin was gored to death by a buffalo while out for a Sunday morning stroll.

He was 71, which is plenty old enough to have died by other less exciting means. I think if you're going to die, having an exciting story to share about it is nice consolation. Not that it's ever nice to have anyone die...or that it lessens the grief of his wife and children and siblings and friends.

Still, I think Grandpa Conrad would have been a little jealous that Keith died "with his boots on." When your death is mentioned in the entertainment section of the newspaper? Well, that's just got to be better than dying of boring old cancer.


  1. Tell your Mom I am sorry for her loss. Pass it on to the rest of the family as well.

    I do not think the bison should be euthanized though. :( That saddens me. It was just wrong place, wrong time situation. Anyways, that is my opinion.

    Again, sorry for your families loss.

  2. I'm torn on the matter of what should happen to the buffalo since it's a domestic buffalo raised for meat, anyway...

  3. Hmmm....interesting point.

  4. Wow, I thought this was a joke at first. But then I realized it wasn't. Sorry to hear about that. But you're right, that's certainly one way to go.
