The Most Dangerous Woman in the World is from Miami

Jennifer Wilson is the first woman to fly a B-2 stealth bomber in combat. It happened on April 1, 2003, when the then 30-year-old Air Force Captain flew a combat mission for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Way to go, Jennifer! The boys here at MVB are real proud of you! You da bomb!

As an aside, it's amazing how much things have changed in 40+ years. Sending American girls to fight our wars is still hard for us to grasp because some of us here at MVB are old enough to have had dads who fought in WWII and Viet Nam, wars in a time in history that never could have imagined women in combat. If a woman saw combat back then, it was usually the aftermath of a skirmish in a MASH tent. Now we learn that, among other things, they are flying the world's most advanced bombers on combat missions. God bless them all and keep up the good work. Like the old Virginia Slims cigarette ads said, "You've come a long way, baby!"

Dangerous, schmagerous, you don't know danger until you've tried to pick up a girl in a SoBe bar. You know that old saying "If looks could kill"? Well, trust me, I've seen many of them use that weapon with their victims stumbling out of bars along Washington Ave with thousand-yard-stares and crying for their mommas. Maybe there's something in the water. Or the Cosmos. Captain Wilson is just one of many women from down here who are just as dangerous-- and they don't need no stinking $2 billion bomber to prove it.
