Headline of the day: San Anselmo teen wearing prom dress, combat boots chases down thieves in S.F.

Erin Schrode, a 16-year-old sophomore at Marin Academy, was decked out in prom gear and boots when she jumped into pursuit of three youths who swiped a friend’s purse and a laptop computer at an afternoon protest rally.

Where was she when I was looking for a prom date? (OK, so when I was looking for a prom date, she wasn’t even born and the woman who would become her mother would have been one of the many trying to come up with a gentle way to say, “You’ve got to be kidding.”)

BTW, there is an actual marketing angle to all this:

The rally – part product launch, part political campaign, part health education – capped months of appearances by Teens for Safe Cosmetics at Bay Area stores, farmers markets and high schools to alert consumers to carcinogenic ingredients in beauty products.
