Apparently some residents didn't get the memo...

....that guns are baaaad news for women:

A sexual predator has been assaulting elderly women in central Texas over the past year, terrifying residents and frustrating investigators who have only a vague description of the suspect.
Beginning with the rape of a 65-year-old woman in Yoakum last January, authorities have linked eight sexual assaults or attempted sexual assaults to the suspect, who has been dubbed the “Twilight Rapist” because most of the attacks occurred around dawn. They also believe he robbed or attempted to rob four other women.
The victims have all been women, ranging in age from 65 to 91. One rape victim played piano at her church on Sundays. An 81-year-old woman scared off an intruder with a gun, firing several rounds for good measure. A 66-year-old woman was attacked twice, despite having moved across town following the first assault.

It's just too bad that 81-year-old woman didn't read the blog of a certain American expatriate living in Italy now, or she'd have come to her senses and just let that rapist have his way with her. Someone needs to help said expat blogger raise his profile so other Yoakum residents could be aware of him and read his blog so he can show them the error of their ways.
