Where In The World Is Elliot Stearns, Really?

Elliot Stearns, much admired author of "From Where I Sit", claims to be in Minneapolis.

I hope he can confirm this somehow, and that he wasn't really in El Paso, Texas:
EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso police arrested a man on a charge of attempted murder Saturday after he was caught fleeing the scene of a stabbing in his motorized wheelchair.

The 52-year-old is accused of stabbing his neighbor in an El Paso apartment complex after several days of feuding, police spokesman Darrel Petry said.

I know, I know, it says stabbing, but we all know how the press gets information wrong. Or maybe he just ran out of bullets.


  1. I'm not above using a knife, but motorized wheelchairs are for sissies! ;)

  2. What if it was a nuclear-powered all-terrain motorized wheelchair with turboboost? :)
