I thought you rockers would enjoy this.
Ron called me early Monday morning at 2am to report this. Ron and his brother Scott Asheton are in Miami Beach, FL finishing up some STOOGES tracks for the next IGGY POP album.
STOOGES Still Kickin' Ass.....Literally
Last night at the 11th st diner in Miami Beach, FL at approximately 1am Ron and Scott Asheton fought off a knife wielding cook and a table tossing busboy to save the life of a stray cat. Apparently the bloodthirsty kitchen help annoyed by the presence of the stray, burst into the dining area exclaiming, "Let's kill that cat!!". Ron the animal lover was not going to have any of this and jumped the pair shocking even his brother Scott. Scott was able to hold his brother back and an exchange of words ensued. Dismayed and frustrated by the lack of communication due to language barriers, "Zorro" and his table tossing side kick retreated back into the kitchen area and the Ashetons paid their bill and left. According to other customers the kitchen help at the 11th St. Diner has severely injured this poor cat in the past leaving him with a broken jaw. Luckily, a good samaritan took the animal to a vet for treatment.

call them and let the owners/management know that cruelty to animals will not be tolerated. Ron thanks you if you do.
