I am watching trash TV again today, one of those shows that find ridiculous videos ,made by people with cell phones.  One showed two old guys in Japan or someplace, stick fighting with each other.  I had an old guy once at the Adrian prison I worked at, charged with assault.  I saw him from the window walking across the yard to the building containing my hearing room.  He walked with a cane.  I first thought, "He probably attacked the other guy with that cane."  The CO escorted him into the hearing room, got him seated.  I read the misconduct report to him, asked him what happened.  He said, "The guy said something that made me mad, so I hit him with my cane."  Oh my, I struggled and lost the fight to maintain my professional demeanor and burst out laughing.
