More kids and guns

Posted By on Wed, Feb 27, 2013 at 9:09 AM

A felony arrest warrant has been issued for Matthew Williamson, the University of Arkansas student who brought a gun to campus and then accidentally shot his own hand with it, Channel 5 KFSM is reporting. From the station:

Williamson, 37, was showing the Taurus .45-caliber revolver to a co-worker at the KUAF radio station on the University of Arkansas campus. The gun fired and blew a .410 shotgun round through his left hand, damaging his left index finger and doing severe damage to the meaty part of his hand between his thumb and pointer and index fingers.

  • Townsend Wolfe, 1935-2017

    Max has posted on the Arkansas Blog the news of Townsend Wolfe's death. The photo Max chose is a great one, but I also wanted to put up this one of Wolfe with his trademark brown cigarette. A More cigarette? A Tiparillo? I don't remember, but I do remember that Wolfe was seldom seen without one. The last time I interviewed him, after the ill-fated "World of the Pharaohs" exhibit, he had quit smoking, but out of long habit patted his shirt pocket, where he'd always kept his cigarettes, from time to time thinking he'd find a pack there before remembering he'd given them up.
