This unusual story from today’s Washington Post: a man with a gun storms a back-yard party on Capitol Hill and puts the weapon to the head of a 14-year-old girl.  “Give me your money or I’ll start shooting.”

And then it happened: in her panic, a guest offered the man a glass of $80-a-bottle wine.  Read the story — the incident ended with a group hug.

There’s a big lesson here.
