No Dinner For You

Brothers Rodney Gilliam, 49, and Randy Gilliam, got into a fight at their home in Muncie, Ind. Both had been drinking, and each claimed ownership of a pot roast. Rodney was pointed in his argument: he used a three-pronged meat fork to stab his younger brother “several times,” police say. “One thing led to another, I feel so bad about it,” said not Rodney, but Randy — the victim, who had wounds all over his head. “A family squabble, I mean, like I said I’m sorry he’s going to jail for it. I don’t want to see him do that,” he said. “But I guess, you know, you shouldn’t stab me.” (RC/WXIN Indianapolis) ...Sometimes the little brother knows best.
