As regular readers know, nothing is more relevant to the mission of a Catholic blog than the lively debate about whether bullets, after having been shot in the air, can actually kill someone by falling back to Earth.
Against my firmly held belief to the contrary, the evidence for the proposition grew (no pun intended) today to larger proportions.
From a blurb found in the Post-Dispatch:
Paul Prudhomme was setting up his cooking tent on the practice range at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans golf event when he was hit in the arm by a bullet. Police believe it was a falling bullet, probably shot about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday from someone within 1 1/2 miles.
Witnesses said the bullet cut Prudhomme's skin on his arm and put a hole in his white chef's coat. But Prudhomme continued cooking until he left the course about 3:30 p.m.
I am a little concerned that bullets apparently are not time and location stamped for easy time-and-place-of-shooting calculation. I am glad the great chef was unharmed, although I hope not to be disrespectful by observing that if a falling bullet had gone into his frame to do serious damage I would concede the argument forever.
