Former Marine Sniper Slapped With 3,000-Yard Restraining Order
November 1, 2006 | Issue 42•44


MACON, GA—Citing Emily Holman's right to feel safe traversing vast open spaces, especially when within visual range of clock towers, parking structures, and tall buildings, a judge awarded the 28-year-old a 3,000-yard restraining order yesterday against her former boyfriend, retired Marine sniper Gordon Lee Blackwood. "When we broke up he started calling me 10 times a day from his job," said Holman, who realized Blackwood's office building, which had an open, flat roof, was only 1,800 yards away. "He had me flinching every time I saw sunlight glinting off any surface within two and a half miles." Blackwood would not comment on the judge's decision, saying only that he still loved Holman and was trying to understand the distance and crosswinds that separated them.

Re: Gotta love \"The Onion\"...

Saw this posted elsewheres, but the poster didn't let on (or didn't know) that it was from the onion, and what all that entailed.

I appreciate the onion for what it is, however, these days I find myself over at the a.v. club far more often (there is a limit to the quantity of fake news one can digest).

Glad you posted.
