Kathryn Weitzel is truly an angel. She is a stay-at-home-mom political activist, and when I needed a personal assistant during the Badnarik campaign, Kathryn immediately jumped to the task and handled my e-mail and filtered some of my telephone calls, as well as assisting me in many other scheduling and administrative matters. She has also helped in a similar manner with other political activities of mine. Her tireless spirit and good nature (as well as thousands of hours of hard work) have forever endeared me to her, despite the fact that she left me for another man — Michael Badnarik. Since the last presidential campaign ended, I haven’t needed her assistance as much and she’s been doing a lot of these same sorts of services for Mike.
I saw her a few weeks ago and noted that she seemed healthy and had probably lost a few pounds since I had seen her last. You can imagine my surprise when Mike and I got an e-mail from her telling us about her new baby, Lucille. Here is an excerpt from her message:
I think I’ll call her Lucille, as in to lose seal, or loose seal — as in what it will do to the intruder’s intestinal movements. Hope all is well and I’m proud of you both — Kathryn
Lucille is a Taurus Millennium PT145, and weighs in at a healthy 22.6 ounces. Constructed with a hammer-forged slide and an injection-molded polymer frame, it is a pocket-size, extremely lightweight double-action-only autoloader which uses .45 ACP. It features a 10-round magazine capacity for 10+1 firepower — and is an excellent choice of a concealed weapon for woman of Kathryn’s physical size and shooting expertise.
Kathryn, all I can think to say is congratulations on the newest member of your family.
