    Don't leave home without it!
    One would also hope she provided a license number to the police to aid in their investigation (it appears, she managed to run home before they responded)

    I drove through that area the first time this week, and both I and my wife commented on how terribly designed that trail is. There are several places where it veers off into foliage, and lots of dark nooks and crannies under bridges and such out of sight of the road.

    I'm a pretty big guy, and I wouldn't want to take that path alone.

    Agreed, it is a pretty sparsely populated area which would appeal to someone with bad intent. Hopefully two things happen:
    1. the runner takes personal responsibility for her own well being and avails herself of the rights the 2nd amendment gives her and
    2. the runner chooses her route more carefully, even if she is now armed to defend herself. We all know having a firearm does not mean you can go where you like without regard for the environment or neighborhood.

I suppose the end result would be a forum that was filled with cliques containing only the right kind of people, that know all the secret handshakes and inside jokes, making it hard for new people to assimilate by design. But somehow, I don't think that brand of exclusivity is what the owners envisioned. But what do I know? Just call me a troll and maybe I'll be offended enough to go away.

    No one is running davidmacbeth off... he is immune to that. People know his schtick, and sometimes comment on it. No biggie.
