Guy Who Co-Wrote 'How to Survive the Running of the Bulls' Attacked By Al Gore
There are some moments when you almost feel like a Supreme Being or karma or something like that might be possible, like when you read this lede in the New York Post:
An American who co-wrote a book called “How to Survive the Running of the Bulls” was badly gored on Wednesday in the morning bull run at Pamplona’s San Fermin festival.
We've included an Amazon linky there, though we aren't sure how reliable that there book is.
Chicago resident Bill Hillmann, 32, tripped and fell when a bull gored him in his right thigh, according to festival website sanfermin.com.
Also injured in the annual attempt to somehow relive the glory days of Ernest Hemingway, when men were men and bulls were animals what smooshed them, was a 35-year-old Spaniard; both men are in serious condition. While Hillman was gored in the thigh, the New York Post makes it sound like the other guy had it worse:
A Spanish man was also gored in the “encierro,” when runners in red scarves and white outfits dash through the Spanish town’s streets, pursued by the huge animals.
If you've ever hurt your encierro, you know how painful that can be.
