Here is what was on the National Rifle Assn.'s display table of handy "personal protection devices" for women--a fake rock, a key chain, a dummy named Sam. And not a firearm in sight. For the first time in California, the NRA on Saturday put on its popular, women-only "Refuse To Be a Victim" seminar. Twenty-six women attended lectures by three female instructors on more than 100 safety suggestions.

When a convicted rapist was recently charged with murdering 10 L.A. women, some longtime residents were reminded of a grisly case from the 1920s. On Feb. 2, 1928, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies found a burlap bag containing a headless body in a La Puente ditch. A male teenager had been shot through the heart with a .22-caliber rifle.

When I was 7 years old, my friends and I would play football in my backyard for hours, often with my mother watching through the kitchen window. One of the games we played was called "smear the queer. " At the time I didn't know what "queer" meant. I only knew if you were brave enough to pick up the ball, you were "the queer" and would get creamed. As I got older, I learned what that term meant, and then, in high school, I realized that I was gay. But that image of how "the queer" got "smeared" stayed with me. I ultimately realized my goal of becoming a professional football player, but being open about my sexuality while I was a player seemed far too dangerous to consider.

More than half of Americans (55%) have personally benefited from one of the government's six best-known entitlement programs, including 53% of  people who voted for Mitt Romney in November's election and 59% of those who voted for President Obama.

Convicted child murderer Elizabeth Diane Downs, who escaped from a medium-security women's prison in Salem, Ore., probably is headed for California, where her youngest child was given up for adoption, said a writer working with her on a book.
