Luckily, you and I don't. Lawrence Szczechowicz shot John Dirsius (an earlier incidental article called him Dearish) for walking on his lawn in June of 1906. While Szczechowicz claimed that he actually shot Dirsuis for crossing a vacant lot that he owned, the circumstances didn't change the outcome. However, Szczechowicz's reputation and his claiming to be Columbus did. Back to Eloise with him.
