Shoot Britney

While speaking at a conference at Hood College in Maryland in October 2003, Kendel Ehrlich, wife of Maryland governor Robert Ehrlich, encouraged women to educate themselves as much as possible and to fiercely guard their independence. How fiercely? "Every woman should be able to take care of themselves and their children on their own," she declared. "It is incredibly important to get that message to young women. You know, really, if I had an opportunity to shoot Britney Spears, I think I would."

The subject of the conference? Domestic violence, of course...

[Ehrlich's spokeswoman said she had made an "inadvertent figure of speech." Jive Records (Spears's label) said in an e-mailed statement that Ehrlich had "shot her own self in the foot by promoting violence."]
