Women's heart attack symptoms are often different from men's. That being the case, though, this is still just amazing. There must be more to the story. There must be, right? Good God...

Check out my website (http://ekupes.blogspot.com) if you want to send her a letter. I have one already written up if you want to use it (a lot of people are), and her home address is listed, as well as the address of the two girls if you would like to donate to them (I pitched a $20). However, a local radio talkshow host raised over $1,900 for the family, so they have covered all court costs twice over. Any remaining donations will be sent to the Columbine High School Victims fund.

And to Dean:

Here's the WHOLE story... She was attacked while walking her daughter to the school bus... FIFTEEN YEARS AGO. That's her excuse. Her hometown newspaper did a full page article on the story (pics and all). Seems that this Wal-Mart cashier is nothing more than a money-hungry bitch.

Either way, the entire neighborhood has turned against her, and she's talking of moving, because of all the hate that is being sent her way. Colorado Newspapers are not treating her kindly. In almost feel sorry for her. Then I remember that my tax dollars paid for the court case.

Cheers!

Linguist,

Actually, the two girls were ordered to pay $39 in costs, in addition to the $871.80 in medical fees. I believe this is what lawyers call "insult to injury."

Er, $871.70.
