This just warms my heart. |
In a nutshell, an Oregon man recently hired someone to kill his wife, Susan Kuhnhausen, a 51-year-old nurse. The hitman surprised her at her home and beat her on the head with a claw-head hammer. A struggle ensued, and she managed to disarm him, get him in a headlock, and choke him to death! Now THAT'S what I'm talkin'bout, lady!! BRING IT! One article reports that Susan has also "been an advocate for protection of nurses, who sometimes face violence in the workplace." Her husband is now in jail.
Stories like this make me glad I moved here. Just yesterday, I was lamenting the fact that there's no grown-up equivalent of Night Rider or Manimal on TV for me to get my heroism fix, what with all the flawed, depressive protagonists who dominate non-kids shows, but it turns out all I had to do was flip to the news. Three cheers for Susan Kuhnhausen!
