The Notorious Newspaper Nogoodnik -- known for quietly sneaking into Our Favorite Starbucks and stealing newspapers when he thinks no one is looking -- was up to his usual tricks this morning at 7th and Montana. This time, however, the crowd was ready. "Look," cried Richard, "There he is ... Get your camera!" "I'm on it!," I replied, as I followed the Nogoodnik into Starbucks. First, he went after the "low-hanging fruit," grabbing a discarded copy of The Los Angeles Times that was left at an unoccupied table. Then, he went for the "Big Score," stealing a copy of The New York Times from the Starbucks Sales Display. Like any hardened criminal, he somehow knew that he was being followed. He glanced around suspiciously before slipping the newspapers into his jacket and heading out the door, no doubt to the cafe down the street where he's known to buy his coffee and read "his" newspapers. Mark my words, one of these days he'll get what's coming to him ... and I just hope The Los Angeles Times is around to cover it!
