Very interesting, Jay. And should be remembered especially by us women. Predators in nature and in “civilization” are constantly searching for prey. Mincing along in high heels and not paying attention is asking for trouble in some areas. And now, too many people are lost in cell-phone land, and totally unaware of their surroundings.

Check out my post several days ago at the end of Malgus’ thread about bad guys in Dirtville, USA. (Personal Experience section.)

Some women on another forum were debating whether to look strong and self-confident, or weaker and non-threatening. My choice is to look like someone who will hurt anyone who tries to hurt me. I think most will not try. So far, so good (71 years… ;) )
