Stacey Dash Used Gun In Self Defense

From Washington Times:

“He had a gun to my head and I thought, ‘My son is in that crib right there,’ ” Ms. Dash said. “[I thought], ‘No you are not going to do this. My son’s life was more important to me than my own.’”

When her attacker came back, Ms. Dash said she picked up a gun and fired several shots at him but missed.

Time Magazine cover: Aisha

“Our cover image this week is powerful, shocking and disturbing. It is a portrait of Aisha, a shy 18-year-old Afghan woman who was sentenced by a Taliban commander to have her nose and ears cut off for fleeing her abusive in-laws.

Aisha posed for the picture and says she wants the world to see the effect a Taliban resurgence would have on the women of Afghanistan, many of whom have flourished in the past few years.

Her picture is accompanied by a powerful story by our own Aryn Baker on how Afghan women have embraced the freedoms that have come from the defeat of the Taliban — and how they fear a Taliban revival.”
