You have got to go over to the 100 Year Old Weblog and read this incredible story!
Apparently, 100 years ago, there was a raging gun battle in Kansas City between a family of religious fanatics and the police witnessed by about 500 spectators! The first shot was fired by a 12 year old girl! There was a "high speed pursuit" on the river!
I'm not kidding you, this would make one hell of a movie! A lot more dramatic than the Union Station Massacre.
The articles never come right out and say what religion the "fanatics" belonged to, but their belief that only 144,000 people will make it to Heaven is a big clue.
Seriously, I don't understand why I am just hearing about this now. There is definitely a part for Christopher Walken in this movie.
