    BEDFORD, Ohio — An Ohio man who argued with his grown son over a messy bedroom said he overreacted when he called 911. Andrew Mizsak called authorities Thursday after his 28-year-old son — who's a school board member in the Cleveland suburb of Bedford — threw a plate of food across the kitchen table and made a fist at him when told to clean his room.

    I recently had a to-the-death argument with a buddy of mine (a former copy editor) who insisted that 911 should be hyphenated. It's not.

    Carry on. ;)

    That was a wasted 9_1_1 call.

    He should have called 9*1*1 instead.

    Certainly a better idea than calling nineoneone

    Or nine hundred eleven.

    We had a guy in our office having a heart attack one night and another guy who called 911 couldn't get through. The reason? He didn't dial 9911 to get an outside line. So he drove the victim the hospital himself. True story.
