The thieves made off with most of her appliances, stereo equipment and computer hardware, and after discovering the theft and alerting the police -- who made a list of the stolen items and promptly told her to kiss them goodbye -- Leigh Anne called me."The CD-player-boombox-microwave-TV-VCR all gone," she practically screamed into my ear."Where?" I asked feebly."I don't know!" she hollered.
