I got a job in Seaside for a Portland-based organization and commuted every day for a year, then transferred to Portland when I could.
I'd say Krazy-8 was Murder Number One. Walt was in immediate danger when he killed Emilio, so it's more self-defense. Krazy-8 was U-locked to a pipe.
hottiedontwantyouropinion: You really are lovely! Now I'll be on my way.

Second, I don't think that the article's tips are to be taken literally, especially based on the line, "Ladies, as much as we all love scathing comebacks, chances are you're not always going to be prepared with the perfect response while being harassed."

"Here's a good litmus test for compliments: Would you say it to your mother or niece? No? Then don't scream it at the woman who's just trying to catch the number 8 bus."

"Hello" can be threatening to women. Check out #streetharassment on Twitter if you don't believe me. Plenty of men that follow/threaten/yell at women that don't respond to a "hello". How hard is it to just leave people alone? Learn about privilege and rape culture and entitlement, assholes.
My favorite Judy Blume book is Wifey, because I found it in a box of my parents' stuff when I was 12 and I read it frequently for pages at a time.
Also, Fudge-a-Mania, because I had a total literary crush on Isobel.
