    Reader's Digest once noted a story of how Norris, true to his characters, prefers to find a non-violent way to solve a situation. Norris was in a bar once when a customer walked in and said to him, "You're in my seat. Move." Norris complied, and as the customer sat down, he recognized Norris. He then said, "Chuck, you could've kicked my butt if you wanted to. Instead of moving, why didn't you just attack me?" Norris' response: "What would that have accomplished?" Norris later said the experience resulted in him getting a new admirer and a new friend.

    Sounds like what most folks would do.

    The Great Lakes Navy Base in North Chicago used to be a rough place. I got sucker punched in the face at the roach coach, knocked clean out, and woke up to handcuffs being placed on me. Imagine being assaulted at a sandwich wagon.

    Another time me and a buddy were jumped by three guys, one had a tire iron. He hit my buddy with it, right across the chest, and when he didn't fall down I knew we would be ok. I punched the nearest one in the face, and he almost fell, but the tree of them scurried away. This was on the way home to the barracks from the chow hall. Not in a bar, not in the ghetto, not beaten up by police, but on the Navy base in the middle of the day.

    I know many other squids with the same tales. You were safer off that base than on it.

    There are bad people out there. Some folks don't have the courtesy to tell you you're in their seat.
