      WARNING TO ALL WOMEN!!!!!!!!!!!

      I just saw a segment of "Oprah" reporting on the deaths of at
      least 14 women in the United States due to broken necks from usually
      harmless purse snatching!! Women who wear their purse straps across
      their chests rather than over their shoulders are at risk for broken
      necks and, possibly, decapitation!! Purse snatchers' usual method of
      operation involves approaching an unsuspecting woman, quickly pulling
      her purse from her shoulder, and fleeing the scene. Purse snatchers do
      not check to see if the purse is around the woman's neck first!! Purse
      straps will not break, your neck most likely will!!!!!!

      Fourteen women have already died!! Beware!!! The first
      reported case of a purse strap-related death occurred in Los Angeles
      in 1987. A young woman was leaving a local mall when a man mistakenly
      broke her neck in an attempt to steal her purse, which was holding a
      measly $20!!!!! X-rays revealed the woman's neck was nearly severed in
      two! Another woman in 1988 suffered not only a twice fractured neck
      bone, but a completely shattered jaw! One woman survived this grisly
      ordeal only to be left quadriplegic for life!!

      The scariest news is that with purse snatching on the rise, 6
      deaths were reported just over the past year!!! Remember this: more
      purse snatchings are reported during Christmas time than any other
      season. Please tell your mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends: DO
      NOT WEAR YOUR PURSE STRAP ACROSS YOUR CHEST!!!!
