There's a variation on an old joke here; if she didn't have love handles, she wouldn't have been shot at all. I'd like to see the map on this one, doesn't make sense, exactly what was the path of the bullet? She wants to get as big as possible and the reporter says, "the suspect remains at large."

I misread the article, I thought it said "the suspect remains as large."

How large is, "as large as a love handle"?

It would be so much better for her health if she lost weight, and just wore Kevlar armor all the time.

This may be the oddest reason I've heard for people not wanting to lose weight, but it's not the only one. I've heard about women who become large because they are intimidated by men's attention and prefer to be left alone, and very petite folks (of both sexes) who gain weight because they want to take up more space and be more noticeable/formidable, instead of being brushed aside.
