You know how certain types of activists always insist that a world under female leadership will be infinitely more peaceful than our current (presumably) male-dominated, totally patriarchal society?
Yeah... You can pretty much chuck those silly old ideas in the trash, right where they belong:
NORTH EAST [Ed.:—A city in Maryland]
Ex-girlfriend charged in fatal shooting
State police have charged a Joppatowne woman with fatally shooting a former girlfriend in the doorway of her Cecil County home.
Police say Sandra Heim, 46, and Helen Sparks, 47, recently had broken up and had argued before the shooting.
The women were driving away from Miss Sparks' home in North East on Saturday at about 1 p.m. when the car stopped. Witnesses told police Miss Sparks began walking home, but Miss Heim got a gun from her trunk and started firing, pursuing Miss Sparks to her doorstep.
Police say Miss Sparks' 22-year-old son captured Miss Heim and neighbors helped hold her until police arrived.
Miss Heim is charged with first- and second-degree murder, assault and handgun violations in the death.
