Hoist By His Own Pitard

Upstate New York on this one...........a town called Berne.....50 year old Daniel Ricketts (nice name) was killed by some booby traps that HE HIMSELF HAD SET to protect the marijuana plants he was growing on his property.  According to Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, Ricketts was driving an ATV in the backyard of his property at around 2:30 P.M. this past Saturday when he was nearly decapitated after running into a fine, nearly invisible piano-type wire that he had set up as a fortification around his marijuana plants.  According to Sheriff Apple, an investigation is underway, but it is believed alcohol was a factor in the accident.

Gee, there's a surprise!

So, this big dope sets up a booby trap to protect his marijuana plants and then gets killed by his own booby trap.  That's one of the problems with marijuana....it does tend to make you a little forgetful.

December 18, 2014.......Looking for a classic movie.....

1.  The original version of this movie came out in the mid-1940s.

2.  It was nominated for 4 Academy Awards and won 3 of them.

3.  The movie featured a child star who's career continued through her adulthood until she died in the early 80s under mysterious circumstances.

Answer:  Miracle On 34th Street

The film won Academy Awards for Best Actory in a Supporting Role (Edmund Gwenn), Best Writing Original Story and Best Writing, Screenplay.  It was also nominated for Best Picture, losing to "Gentlemam's Agreement".

Natalie Wood was the child star of the movie.  During the making of her last film, "Brainstorm", she drowned while on a weekend boat trip to Santa Catalina Island, California with her husband, Robert Wagner, actor Christopher Walken and the boat's captain, Dennis Davern.  Many facts surrounding her drowning are unknown because no one admitted seeing how she entered the water.
