14-Year Old Convicted in Multiple Murder

          "The 14-year-old Medicine Hat girl convicted of plotting the brutal murders of the Richardson family received the maximum 10-year sentence in court Thursday.

          The youngest convicted multiple murderer in Canadian history will spend four years in custody in a treatment program designed for violent young offenders diagnosed with a mental illness. She will then serve four-and-a-half years in community supervision between psychiatric facilities and group homes that will most likely put her in the community at age 18. This, combined with the 18-and-a-half months time served, equals the maximum 10-year sentence under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) for a 12- or 13-year- old person."

          The article makes no mention of the adult man who was alleged to have participated somehow in the murders as well.

Daylight Savings Time

                  This is just a quick reminder to not forget to change your clocks back 1 hour tonight at 2am (Sunday).

Wind Warning for Lethbridge

"A ridge of high pressure over southern British Columbia coupled with a developing low pressure system over the foothills will bring strong westerly winds to the above warned regions today. Winds over Crowsnest Pass region will increase to west 70 km/h gusting to 110 this afternoon and persist through the night. Winds over Lethbridge and Cardston will increase to west 70 gusting to 100 this evening and then diminish overnight."

Sounds like a good day to stay indoors, catch up on tv shows, and do homework.

Two Movies Watched

                    I decided to spend my night watching a couple of movies. I watched "Grindhouse: Death Proof" first. It wasn’t half bad too be honest. The only problem is they tried to build too much of a storyline into a movie that didn’t need it. The car chases make the movie, easily. The movie spends 2/3 of it’s time with the characters talking to each other, so we can get to know them. Slightly interesting, but unnecessary. There are some great one-liners, but the rest is fluff. Like I said, the car chases make the movie, as the crazed psychopath stuntman (Kurt Russell) goes against two groups of friends, to see who can run each other off the road (and kill each other) first.  Just the kind of concept that Quentin Tarantino would come up with.

                   I then watched "Next", starring Nicolas Cage. Very good movie, solid story and plot, and well-acted. Cage stars as a man born with the gift of seeing 2 minutes into the future, except when it comes to the love of his life, in which case he can see much further into the future, but only if she’s involved He basically uses this gift to help the government try and prevent terrorists from setting off a nuclear bomb in Los Angeles. Great concept, and a generally well-made movie!

                  I still have a few movies left to catch up on, including "License to Wed" (which I’ll be watching with a friend at some point), and a couple of other movies that are sitting on my hard drive. I also need to catch up on some tv shows that I’ve missed. I love the internet. I don’t know what I’d do without it!
