Gee, I thought of committing a crime when I’m 80 to get better than rest-home care, but this is a bit much:

An Arvada woman told police she strangled her mother with a rope so that she could go to jail and read books.
Louise Jekowski, 53, called police early Thursday, telling them she had strangled her mother to help her die, according to an arrest affidavit. Jekowski added that she was ready to go to prison for life.
While I could never condone, I could possibly understand this for writing, more than reading.
