Lara Logan's appearance on 60 Minutes Sunday was overshadowed by the breaking news about the killing of al-Quada mastermind Osama bin Laden. I do not want her bravery in telling this horrendous story should go without notice for in some ways she represents so many women who have been forced to endure sexual assault - many, many of whom keep it quiet out of shame or embarrassment or fear that telling will cost them their jobs - women servicemembers as well as women journalists. I applaud Lara Logan for her courage.
Meanwhile, KCBS Channel 2 News reported that a woman in her 20s was sexually assaulted by two of five men who "befriended" her in Hollywood around 3:00am on the second level of the parking structure that serves Pacific's Cinerama Dome, Arclight Hollywood, 24 Hour Fitness and area restaurants in the 6300 block of Sunset Boulevard. "We just know there was a bunch of males involved and there was females involved," said Detective Chris Merlo. "This whole parking structure was filled with a lot of people at the time."
