1944 Miss America Has Quirky Talent

Or so Yahoo seems to think.

Miss America 1944 has a talent that likely has never appeared on a beauty pageant stage: She fired a handgun to shoot out a vehicle's tires and stop an intruder.
I 'do' think it's great that an 82 year old woman was not only capable of shooting as she did, but she also had the guts to do it...(I admire her feisty-ness, too, when she says "I didn't even think twice. I just went and did it," she said. "If they'd even dared come close to me, they'd be 6 feet under by now.")....but does that really make it 'talent'? I think a writer got a little too enthusiastic about getting his/her first line to be an eye-catcher with a pun twist, but oh well. Read the rest of the story here.
