A coauthor of the book Fiesta: How to Survive the Running of the Bulls was badly gored on Wednesday in the morning bull run at Pamplona's San Fermin festival. Bill Hillmann, 32, tripped and fell when a bull gored him in his right thigh, according to festival website SanFermin.Com, which has photos of the incident. There have been 14 fatalities over the past century at the fiesta, which dates to the 13th century.

Sounds like the bulls didn't do any serious damage. Too bad.

Ran it about 12 years ago. I'm against bull fighting in general but what fun times at the international funfest known as San Fermin.

I do not really feel very sorry for them. I used to tend some Scottish highlanders and was rushed many times by a few of thew bulls. Anyone who intentionally puts them selves in that situation has to know it's a dumb risk. On the bright side you will learn exactly how fast you can run and how high you can jump.

If you can't die it wouldn't be exciting.

i am a seeker of danger and, to put it bluntly, san fermin is for wimps.

why, just last week i dressed up like condoleeza rice and ran through downtown mosul, iraq yelling, "long live israel and george w bush!"

i have also put on my klan costume and run down pennsylvania avenue in upton at midnight, repeatedly shouting "tar baby crack whore!"

but my favorite danger seeking activity is my daily toilet papering of boaz' house dressed up to look like a crossdressing barack obama.
