The first time Leon was caught shoplifting, he was 9 years old and immediately plea bargained by crying.''I promise I'll never do it again,'' he sobbed quite believably.''Let's give him another chance,'' said an assistant sales manager who thought she understood human nature.From this, Leon learned a valuable lesson about life: Acting is everything.''Hi, Doc,'' Leon cries out now to the nearest pharmacist whenever he enters a drugstore. He is 42 years old and should feel idiotic doing this, but he does not.He cries this greeting loudly enough that all within the premises may hear him, citizen and security people alike.

Washington. -- I like shoplifting. No, I don't mean slinking away with unpaid-for goods. Rather, my fondness is for the annual holiday-season alarms about the billions of dollars lost to shoplifting.Studded with seemingly solid numbers, the worrisome accounts mostly originate with security firms peddling anti-theft gadgets. Somberly and unskeptically accepted by the press, the ensuing echoes are reminiscent of the bloated assessments of the Soviet menace that used to come out of the Pentagon, with precise numbers attached.

Finally, and I mean finally! Sunday night's installment of "The Walking Dead" was the midseason finale, and it took almost 50 minutes into the episode, titled "Pretty Much Dead Already," to get there, but we finally got some of the satisfaction that we were waiting for. Up until that last ten minutes, though, I was starting to worry that we were in for another cliffhanger where the characters are standing around with concerned looks on their faces...

The E-Z Money pawn shop shares a block of West Patapsco Avenue with a vacant storefront, a liquor store and a used furniture shop. "We buy scrap gold coins," the sign out front says. "Top $$$ paid. " The neon sign is turned off, but the lights are on inside, where the elderly owner and his son are busy cleaning empty shelves. The father is going off to federal prison in December, though he doesn't know for how long, and on Tuesday he was busy sprucing up for a new owner. He was willing to talk — only if his name didn't appear in the newspaper — but all he wants to say is that he was duped into becoming part of a conspiracy he knew nothing about.
