When I was living in Denver I was watching the news and saw this story about a 25 year old woman and her 35 year old common-law husband who both died in a shootout with state police after robbing a bank. Normally, Denver nightly news could not be more insipid and uninspiring. But I found this to be an exceptional story. "how romantic." I thought to myself. Not necessarily the robbing of banks or dying in the trailer they lived together in a shootout with the authorities, but the fact that these two people had a vision for their own future together and followed it through.
