"The Husband's Behavior Was Heroic...

...but what we expect of a husband toward his wife: his right, and his proud privilege, to die for his woman."*

In Houston, a father died at the hands of a robber while defending his wife, but not before inflicting fatal wounds to the robber.

*quote from Robert A.Heinlein, "The Pragmatics of Patriotism," the 1973 James Forrestal Address to the US Naval Academy midshipmen.
