Don't Shoot!

A West Virginia man who claimed to be the victim of a drive-by shooting along a rural Montana highway while working on a memoir called Kindness in America has confessed to shooting himself, authorities said Friday.

Valley County sheriff's officials said they believe 39-year-old Ray Dolin shot himself as a desperate act of self-promotion.

Just so someone would notice him.

He could have tried musical comedy. Or become a boho in the Bywater. That's what people I know do to self-promote.

But a bullet? Bullets hurt.


  1. Ah, the Marigny... I lived there once. Came to an end when, while I was at work one night, someone saw fit to clean out about 95% of my house... Good times.

  2. And that's another way to get attention.

    Man, for the good old days when they only took your junk. Now they take your life.
