No blogging 'til Monday

I'll be celebrating Festivus. As if my life depended upon it.

I leave you with this heartwarming Christmas story:

A karaoke performer who stabbed a heckler at a James Island bar died after he was tackled by bystanders, authorities said.

Alton Ray Smith, 39, of Folly Beach, died about 1 a.m. Wednesday at the Medical University of South Carolina Hospital, Charleston County chief deputy coroner Rae Wooten said.

Smith stabbed a man who criticized the performance late Tuesday at Skipper’s Sports Grill, witnesses said. Several men tackled Smith and held him until police arrived.

The altercation played a part in Smith’ death, but more tests are needed to determine how he died, Wooten said. No one has been charged in the death, Charleston police Lt. Richard Moser said.

Robert Citrolo, 32, of James Island, remained in the hospital Wednesday, where he was being treated for three wounds to his back and a punctured lung, police said.

Happy holidays, readers! No, really. I mean it. Really. I swear! Stop looking at me like that!
