    Fla. shooting victim goes to work with bullet in head

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS • December 18, 2008

    RIVIERA BEACH -- Think you're having a rough morning? A Riviera Beach man who was hit by a stray bullet in the back of the head is back at work — with the slug still stuck in his skull.

    E.T. Strickland says the bullet hurts, but not enough to keep him from his job. The 74-year-old sells commercial real estate. He was told by his doctors not to have the bullet removed unless it was pressing on any arteries or causing health problems. He does plan to see a neurosurgeon though because he wants it taken out if possible.

    Police said Strickland was hit by a bullet Tuesday night from an attempted robbery outside a Walgreens store. A second person was also shot, several times, as he was leaving the store. Police said that person was listed in stable condition Wednesday.
    CVS and Walgreens are not safe places to be in FL, no matter where you live.

    One very fortunate (or hard-headed) man.
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. - Jim Elliott

    The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
