GA: Armed passerby saved woman from brutal attack:  "Dennis Terry decided to take a different route to the post office Thursday morning, and it’s a good thing he did. While driving on College Avenue near downtown Athens, he saw a man and woman struggling over a bag. When Terry stopped and backed up to see what was going on, he saw the man punch the woman, knocking her to the ground as she still clung to the bag.  Terry didn’t think twice about what to do next.  he 61-year-old Athens man grabbed his pistol and jumped out of his truck.  I went running toward them and started hollering. ‘You get down and turn her loose or I’ll shoot,’” Terry said in an interview Friday with the Athens Banner-Herald.  I got within about 15 feet of them and told him to ‘get down or I’ll shoot’ two or three times, and when he saw I meant business he turned her loose and ran,” Terry said."

Boehner says House will likely file suit within weeks to get Fast & Furious documents:  "GOP House Speaker John Boehner said Sunday the chamber will likely file a lawsuit to compel the Justice Department to release more documents related to the investigation into the federal government’s Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation.  Boehner, R-Ohio, said the suit could be filed within the next several weeks, following the GOP-led House approving two resolutions Thursday that put Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to provide additional documents to congressional investigators.  However, the second, civil contempt resolution grants the House the ability to ask a court to compel the Justice Department to hand over the documents.President Obama has already asserted executive privilege over the documents in question."
