    I’m disappointed that the Drudge headline made her sound like a Nancy Kerrigan style whiner:

    “Acid Attack Victim: ‘Why Me?’…”

    The Columbian article said she’s moving past the why me questions and is grateful for God’s provision of eye protection.

    I think she shows courage and a great attitude.

    Read all accounts. NOBODY has or will even insignuate that this was a hate crime.

    I mean, it probably was, and would be called so, however a minority was the vicious attacker.

    In the original post, the attackers minority status is not even mentioned until the very last sentence, and you could feel the pain of the author that he felt he had to insert it.

    God I hate racism, from ANY direction.
