A Big Day for Big Women

Doris Ozmun, 43, of Snyder, OK, posted pictures of her tattooed body on the web. Her nude, tattoed body. Her husband, the chief of police, felt obliged to resign in the ensuing uproar. He said "My wife is 6-foot-3 and weighs 300 pounds. If there is somebody that thinks they can control her, have at it. I have tried for 11 years and haven't been able to."

The adjacent story in our local paper, the Lexington Herald-Leader, was entitled "Woman Kills Home Intruder."

Susan Kuhnhausen, 51, surprised a hammer-wielding burglar in her home and strangled him with her bare hands. The burglar, a brutal career criminal named Edward Haffey, 59, was 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds. Kuhnhausen is 5-foot-7 and 260 pounds. After killing the crook, Kuhnhausen walked to a neighbor's house, who called 911. Kuhnhausen was briefly treated at the hospital where she worked, then released. "Everyone I've talked to said 'Hurray for Susan," said neighbor Annie Warnock, who called 911. "You didn't need to calm her. She's an emergency room nurse. She's used to dealing with crisis."
