This sounds like the title of an R.A. Lafferty story. A friend of mine was involved in an incident wherein he stopped a purse snatcher. He got stabbed for his efforts. The amazing thing was he subdued the attacker after being wounded without hurting them. He was not seriously injured and was able to return to work the next day.
I am just testing out the livejournalling system to see how it works and to test the typefaces available.
