One evening in July 1994, 50-year-old Steven Chaifetz and his wife were eating in a popular Long Island diner when a bullet pierced his body, killing him instantly. Three days later another slug slammed into the bulletproof booth of a nearby Amoco gas station, cracking the glass and sending an attendant diving for cover. Not long after that, a Burger King employee was hit by a bullet while wiping tables. Police in Suffolk County on Long Island soon determined they had in their midst one of the rarest and most worrisome of killers - a random serial sniper.

SOUTHAMPTON , N.Y. -- Middle-class year-rounders in the Hamptons come to accept the miles of millionaires inching Porsches through summertime traffic to the next tent party. But they did not expect this influx from the other extreme. The newest Long Island East Enders are homeless, 329 of them, crammed into Southampton motels for months on end as Suffolk County scrounges for space for a homeless population that has more than doubled since 1999. Suddenly year-round residents are wedged between the entitled rich and the entitlement programs of the poor.

The New York county that could be considered Cell Phone Central -- home of the Hamptons and other enclaves where the phones are as popular on the playground as they are at poolside -- has moved to curb the use of the phones in cars. In a 12-6 vote, the Suffolk County Legislature made driving with a hand-held cell phone a crime, carrying a $150 fine. Suffolk is believed to be the nation's first county -- and its largest entity, with about 1.4 million inhabitants -- to adopt such a ban. Similar ordinances have been passed recently in Marlboro, N.J.; Brooklyn, Ohio; and three towns in Pennsylvania.
