After 16 years on the run, big-time Boston mobster Whitey Bulger, 81, and his girlfriend, Catherine Greig, 60, were arrested on Wednesday at an apartment in Santa Monica, California. The FBI, who had Bulger on their Most Wanted List, had recently launched a campaign to find him, and the idea was to try to find someone who'd encountered Grieg, a dental hygienist who reportedly had a number of appearance-enhancing surgeries. The FBI placed ads in a national dentists' journal last year, and in a plastic surgery one this year. Mere days ago, the FBI took things up a notch, running public service announcements on daytime TV in 14 cities — and the new effort paid off.

The story just fascinates me. I'm especially curious about the dynamic between Greig and Bulger. It's gotten me thinking about the world's most famous "gun molls": a term for the female companion of a male professional criminal. The best-known of them all, by far, has got to be Bonnie Parker (pictured), who helped to put her partner-in-crime, Clyde Barrow, on the map.

Which gun molls are the ones that you find most interesting? Who comes to mind first? A character from a Quentin Tarantino movie? Or someone from the headlines of days gone by?
