Tam Smacks-down ABC News

View From The Porch: Boomsticks: "Oh my God! The chicks are packing heat!" There was an ABC news story a few days ago (on Good Morning America, I believe) that completely pissed me off. It was insulting, biased, and full of factual errors. I could only come up with a short rant at the time, but Tam takes them apart.
Appropos of nothing, we get introduced to the good Ms. Froman via an out-of-context quote chock full of "passion" and "emotions". You know, the ol' subliminal "Oh, jeeze, they're so emotional. If they have a gun, they might blow me away during that time of the month." I don't think you need to be worried about that, sport. We're no more likely to shoot you at "that time" than we are to run you over or shiv you with that nice JA Henckel chef's knife you got us last Christmas. (No matter what time of the month it is, though, I'd recommend kevlaring up before swilling the milk from the jug. We have glasses for a reason, honey.)
And I love her take on the "facts" spouted by the Brady Bunch. As they say, go read the whole thing.
