‘Bill, Call 911. You’ve Been Shot.’

This article reminded me of the single most unforgettable line I’ve ever read in a newspaper story.   Somewhere in the distant past, when I was working for The Phoenix Gazette, one of our reporters — I think it was Edy Jensen — wrote an amazing account of a man who was shot in the head by his wife while he was sleeping.  He not only didn’t wake up, he didn’t even notice he had been shot, except for a pretty bad headache.  After a few days, a friend who knew of the attempted assassination left him a note to get help, and my recollection is it read as I’ve quoted it above.  I wish I could find the story to share with readers, but I haven’t been able to locate in on unpaid databases, probably because it’s at least 15 years old.
