And now for a little low-tech news.  A grandmother in Channelview Texas, a suburb of Houston, was none too pleased with the construction going on near her home.  Construction workers called 911 when she came out of her home and allegedly threatened them with a 12-guage shotgun.  Eleouise Adcock, the 90 year old great-grandmother, was not arrested but was put onto a stretcher and taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation.  Brendan Spaar cannot believe that the SWAT team was called to respond to a 90 year old great grandmother.  Even more amazing is that the standoff lasted more than 4 hours.  Brendan Spaar wonders if the woman was lonely and decided to tell the negotiator all about her grandchildren.  There may be a new song to sing this Christmas season and it won’t be about grandma getting run over by a reindeer!
