Murdoch's Wife to the Rescue

As all the world knows by now, during his testimony yesterday to a Parliamentary committee, Press Baron Rupert Murdoch was attacked by a pie-throwing "protester." In the video below, we see Baron Rupert's son largely immobile, Rupert himself sitting with as much dignity as can be mustered under the circumstances, and Mr. Murdoch's wife, the former Wendi Deng, vaulting over intervening obstacles to smack the pie-thrower up side the head.  Ms. Deng, a former volleyball player, married Murdoch in 1999, when she was 29 and he 66.  She seems a good investment, wot?

At least now I have an answer to the inevitable question: "No, no, my dear, it's not just THAT -- I need a bodyguard as well."
