Absurd? Yes; and you probably deserve it

"Spent shells litter the ground at what is left of the firing range, and camouflage outfits still hang in a storeroom. Just a few months ago, this ranch was known as Camp Thunderbird, the headquarters of a paramilitary group that promised to use force to keep illegal immigrants from sneaking across the border with Mexico.

Now, in a turnabout, the 70-acre property about two miles from the border is being given to two immigrants whom the group caught trying to enter the United States illegally. " (http://nytimes.com/2005/08/19/national/19ranch.html?8hpib)

1. Cross the border illegally.
2. Get 70 acre of land for free.

Not a bad deal.
