"Cowan was upset that a political figure's daughter was on the show when he didn't think she was a good dancer, the complaint states." - from an article in the Wisconsin State Journal. It seems that Bristol Palin's bad dancing enraged Steven Cowan, 66, who shot up his TV when Bristol's routine started. I'm not kidding. The article explains, "Allegedly set off by Bristol Palin's appearance on 'Dancing With The Stars,' a rural Black Earth man kept police at bay outside his home for 15 hours Monday and Tuesday before he surrendered to police." It seems that Mr. Cowan was also "under stress from a financial situation and was receiving care for a mental health problem." Really? Because Homey sounds perfectly sane to me. No, seriously, the dude is nuts, Bristol is tragic, and we all need to think long and hard about gun control. For real.
