Swords into Plough-shares 2006 style.

I read this story today and thought it was a nice twist on turning swords into plough-shares.

In Mexico City the authorities are offering computers in exchange for guns. There are only 150 computers on offer, but it is still a nice idea.

The computers-for-guns program, which echoes past schemes in other city districts that offered groceries for guns, will target some of the district's most crime-hit areas, although collectors' items are also turning up.
