You Choose! Winners and Losers!

Winning story! Option #1 – Firefighters in Georgia have rescued a 14-month-old girl from a locked bank vault.  Here's how the toddler got there... she was visiting her grandmother, who works at the bank, when she wandered into the open vault. It locked automatically at closing time. Authorities pumped air into the vault, while firefighters struggled to free her, but turns out.. they couldn't open the vault! Finally a locksmith used a drill to break open the vault -  The baby was trapped in the vault for four hours. She is doing ok.

Option #2 – A rodeo catastrophe.  Sometimes front row seats aren't always a good thing. Especially if you are at this rodeo in North Carolina!  Two spectators up front got a closer view of the action than they wanted when the bull jumped over a five-foot wall.  One fan suffered a broken foot and the other a bruised leg, scrambling to get out of the way. As for the bull – he actually went on with the show. vo.bull.jumps.stands.WITN

Option #3 – Forget the Oscars, the Razzie Awards are taking note of the year's worst films. Here's a quick look at the winners – or maybe I should say losers:  Worst actor: Ashton Kutcher for both "Killers" and "Valentine's Day." Worst actress: All four of the ladies from "Sex and the City 2," that's Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis.  The top prize went to "The Last Airbender" for worst movie of 2010. It also picked up worst director, worst screenplay, worst supporting actor and a new category - worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D. Ouch. index.html

Twists of the Collar Bomb Case

Update: Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong was sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years.

It was a bizarre crime that baffled investigators for years and the woman behind it all, according to prosecutors, is getting sentenced Monday. But some have their doubts about whether all of the guilty in the collar bomb case of 2003 were brought to justice. CNN's Don Lemon spoke with investigative journalist Rich Schapiro about the murder/robbery/bombing involved. Schapiro conducted 75 interviews and looked through thousands of pages of documents to write "The Incredible True Story of the Collar Bomb Heist" for Wired Magazine.
