The Fireworks came early at 7th and Montana this morning as The Notorious Neighborhood Newspaper Thief once again dipped his sticky fingers into the newspaper bin and walked away with a "free" copy of The Los Angeles Times. "Stop, thief!," I cried, "You're not going to get away with it this time!" But, of course, he did. "Have you no shame?!?," I continued, "You disgust me!" He looked at the newspaper in his hand, then he looked at me quizzically -- as if to say "I just can't help myself" -- and darted out the door. Who knows ... maybe he suffers from a new form of Tactile Tourette Syndrome!
