Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, July 10, 2018

When a man with a shotgun shattered the glass door of the Capital Gazette newspaper office and began to shoot, Wendi Winters stood up. ... Winters charged forward holding a trash can and recycling bin, said [Janel] Cooley, a sales consultant. Winters shouted something like, "No! You stop that!" or "You get out of here!" like she was warding off an unwanted dog. "She may have distracted him enough that he forgot about me because I definitely stood up and was looking at the door," Cooley said. "I'm sure he wasn't expecting ... anyone to charge him." Winters' colleagues agree she saved their lives. Of the 11 employees in the office during the attack, six survived.

There's a thin line between brave and stupid. In situations like this, I'd probably lean toward the latter, possibly to my detriment.

Good for her, good for them.

The guy who threw a bar stool at the Cafe Racer shooter didn't fare so well.

The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good girl with big cans.

So you think getting shot while on your belly under your desk is better than getting shot trying to do something about it. Do you realize how stoopid that sounds?
