It’s been nine weeks since daring CBS reporter Lara Logan was sexually assaulted while covering protests in Egypt’s Tahrir Square for a 60 Minutes story. While little has been heard from Logan during her recovery at home in Washington, her office is sending out thank-you cards to well-wishers. They include a photo of Logan smiling in combat and this note: “The wonderful letters, and kind words of love and support, have carried me through this traumatic time. I can’t tell you how much it has meant to me and how grateful I am. This will not define me. My best work is yet to come! With love, Lara.” [See photos of the Egyptian uprising.]
