A Missouri man is charged with unlawful use of a firearm, after peppering his T-V with bullets.
Police responded to a home in Joplin Wednesday after reports of shots being fired inside.
The 70 year old homeowner was angry that he had lost his cable, and was unable to get his new DTV converter to work properly.
After a brief standoff, the man was taken into custody. His wife told officers the suspect had been drinking.

"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."

Makes you wonder why, since he had the means at hand, he didn't shoot the thing BEFORE it went on the fritz.
