Grant had the story of the day - A 66-year-old man shot himself in both his legs Saturday afternoon while trying to loosen a stubborn lug nut with a 12-gauge shotgun. A Kitsap County (in Washington state) newspaper, the Kitsap Sun, reported that nobody else was hurt and he wasn't intoxicated. Texters wanted to know if he got the lug nut off. Sorry, no. Texters also suggested KSL send him a gift card to Home Depot.

Grant also shared a great story about the lingering effects of anger. Heather Mills needs to calm down.
