Oh, dear. Overnight reports from South Africa do not appear to bode well for this man.
Olympian and Paralympian Oscar Pistorius is said to have accidentally shot his girlfriend. The assumption is that he mistook her late late night visit for one of the home invasions which are all too common in South Africa.
Anything else shock you overnight? Oh, and please try not to turn this into a fight about gun ownership until we know more. Thanks

Oscar Pistorius, the usually smiling South African, has come across as embittered and petty today.
A quick recap. Overnight, the South African “Blade Runner” became the fade runner. Pistorius had won the T44 200m at the last two Paralympics, but was mowed down in the final few metres. He then sharpened a few blades of his own.
The South African, who also competed at the London Olympics, claimed that his conqueror, Brazilian Alan Oliveira had an unfair advantage due to oversized carbon blades which allow a greater stride length.
