Is The Pen Mightier Than The Sword?

Or just easier to get access to on short notice?  From the February 21, 2012 Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
A 21-year-old Mableton woman has been charged with aggravated battery after she stabbed a Cobb Community Transit bus driver who tried to break up a fight, authorities said.
...
The incident happened shortly after 3 p.m. Twyne had borrowed a male passenger's cell phone, and an argument broke out when she allegedly refused to return it to him.
Bus driver Damian Haney, 39, of Lawrenceville tried to calm the situation, but the woman pulled out a knife, police said.
Other passengers took the knife from her, police said, but she then grabbed a pen from Haney's shirt pocket and stabbed him repeatedly in the face. The woman was subdued and taken into custody.
An impressive mugshot of her, too!  Perhaps the most astonishing combination of ugly and stupid that I have seen in a long time.
