Saw this in the news this morning.
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Court papers allege that an Olympia woman, angry
that her husband left her, tampered with his power tools so that he
received a powerful electric shock.
Carolyn Paulsen-Riat was booked Friday into the Thurston County Jail
for investigation of third-degree assault, domestic violence, and
second-degree malicious mischief. A judge released the 33-year-old
woman on her own recognizance.
The Olympian newspaper reports that court documents say that on Jan.
1, the man was using a 220-volt table saw when he received the shock,
knocking him to the ground. Thurston County sheriff's deputies say the
man did not need to go to a hospital.
In the documents, deputies say the woman told them she had reversed
the wires on his power tools because she was angry he was leaving.
Another good reason not to piss her off. It was komonews.com if you
want to see it.
I was thinking the same thing (attempted murder). I suppose she could claim
ignorance as far as what could kill him, but *that* assertation is tough to
reconcile with someone who has the knowledge to pull that stunt off without
"Is there any reason to believe she is anything but a woman scorned, which
Hell no fury hath like?"

I loved that quote.
Yesterday I was reading a cartoon that a neighbor sent to me. Kim was with
in arm swinging distance.
2 older guys sitting on the curb out side a store. One looks over at the
other and asks,
You know why a woman's work is never done?
He follows up with,
They don't get up early enough.
Good thing Kim did not have a knife.... ;~)
I guess we should collectively hope that this doesn't get widespread
distribution... don't want to give anyone ideas. On the other hand, how many
could have pulled that off with out zapping themselves? ;~)
