This is a hoorah for Stephanie L. Molina, of Poplar Bluff, Missouri, who fought off an intruder with a railroad spike. I have a spike from the railroad line that used to run (and now just lies) by Bloomfield, Missouri, a small town of 1800 people (at best). I’ve kept it just for sentimental reasons, but now, now, thanks to Stephanie L. Molina, I’ll add a couple of other reasons: protection and pride. Good for her! I’m glad she’s okay. According to the article about the event (which this should link to), the blood trail from her apartment led the police to the intruder. It was his blood. Whew.
