The March 2007 issue of America’s 1st Freedom contains a fabulous article about Lyudmila Pavlichenko, a women considered to be the best female sniper ever. Lyudmila had 309 confirmed kills during WW II including 36 Nazi snipers. She was wounded in battle four times. In addition she was the first Soviet citizen granted a reception in the White House, being received by Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. What a woman! This would make an award winning movie.

From the “I can’t believe this is happening” file, the city of Buffalo, N.Y., is participating in a toy gun “buy-back.”A program initiated by the FATHERS grassroots community and anti-violence organization has swapped basketballs, footballs, books and board games for the toy guns of the city’s youth.
At press time, more than 100 toy guns already have been turned in, ranging from water pistols to soft pellet guns that look real.
Excerpt and post title taken from the March 2007 issue of America’s 1st Freedom. I could not locate a link for the FATHERS organization in question. I did notice that if you do a search you find that this is not a new idea, and many people are doing the same sort of things across the nation. Thank goodness for that.
An article found on Cigar Aficionado’s website tells of freshman Rep. Keith Ellison’s (D-MN) solution for his offense over senior congressman Tom Tancredo’s (R-CO) cigar smoke–call the police of course! As the story says, I suppose Representative Ellison should feel at ease with such an action after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Planet of Mars) banned smoking in the Speaker’s Lobby last month.
