In Gun Ownership Statistics, Partisan Divide Is Sharp - NYTimes.com

I witnessed a cat attack my daughter in law last night. It scratched her leg pretty badly. My son, Herbert Ooi , did an amazing job calmly talking to the cat and getting her to calm down son. It was a remarkable thing to see. In moments like these you really see people's gifts. Herbert is an amazingly kind and just man. He is also an incredibly brave one. I could not have done what he did. I salute him for his courage and thoughtfulness. He could not have handled the situation better. I am still in awe.
