I just watched the Jay Leno segment with the Utah woman who recovered her purse from a thief. Betty Horton was charming, cute, and reminded me of my grandmother. I could see Ethel Collins giving the same tongue-lashing and then compassion that Betty gave to the thief.
Here’s the story, from the Deseret News.
I’ve heard it many different ways, of course, but the bottom line is Betty stood up for herself. She took charge. She was empowered. I have no idea whether or not Betty is Mormon, but frankly, I don’t care.
I was impressed with her story, and the way she handled the situation.
You go, Betty. More power to you.
