Hyperion. 324 pages. $24.95Kevin Mitnick is no John Dillinger. When FBI agents burst into his Raleigh, N.C., apartment a year ago, Mitnick didn't pull a gun. He threw up.That anticlimax reflected the nature of his crimes - stealing software, tampering with telephone systems, reading other people's electronic mail. Though his scams required skill, they were seedy and sophomoric, never grand or terrifying.

Prosecutors secured indictments against about two dozen suspected heroin dealers in the Mondawmin area of Baltimore and worked with police to carry out 11 searches last week and make 19 arrests, the state's attorney's office said. Among those taken into custody was Aaron Ausby, 22, who prosecutors say they suspect was the supplier to three drug dealing networks in West Baltimore. The three groups operated along a stretch of Reisterstown Road and often collaborated with one another, prosecutors say. Ausby was arrested at the end of July during a search where prosecutors recovered about 500 heroin capsules and nine grams of raw heroin, according to the state's attorney's office.

MILWAUKEE -- Should Milwaukee catcher Jesse Levis ever find a need for another vocation, he could always try professional wrestling. He provided a fine impression of a takedown yesterday, a move that led to Milwaukee's lead run in its 6-4 win over the Orioles.The Brewers had the bases loaded with nobody out in the sixth inning, trailing 4-3, when Levis hit a sharp grounder to Rafael Palmeiro. The Orioles' first baseman turned and threw to second, where shortstop Cal Ripken caught the ball, stepped on the bag and fired back to first.

Long after many of his teammates have hit the showers -- that's when the real work begins for Sal Aquia. For that's when the senior plants his back against a matted wall in Archbishop Curley's wrestling room and makes the most progress.He'll execute 100 stand-ups, the standard escape maneuver from the bottom referee's position. He'll execute 200 sprawls, the most common counter to an opponent's double- or single-leg take-down attack.Aquia's muscular 160-pound physique -- he's trimmed 23 pounds off a beefy frame that ballooned to 183 during the summer -- helps him to endure grueling workouts with coaching assistants Dan Lopez, Etienne Mizczak and older brother Tony Aquia, said coach Alan Gebhart.

When Jake Smith first saw former wrestler Jerome Featherstone Jr. working out six months ago at the Baltimore Boxing Club, the veteran trainer and promoter spotted his talent immediately. "The way he trained was unbelievable," Smith said. "I saw him and I was like, 'Holy hell, this kid's got something.'" The two began working together, and three months ago Featherstone won his debut amateur fight. In his second bout, on the March 23 "Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh" card at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie, the Boys' Latin alumnus won the East Coast Championship middleweight belt, nearly scoring a third-round knockout.

There is no media process more fascinating to watch this week than the one unfolding around Texas Gov. Rick Perry, the newest GOP presidential candidate. The process involves network news and cable channels trying to take the candidate down a peg -- telling him essentially, "Hey, hot dog, this isn't the Texas League any more, this is the big show, so settle down. " Perry hit the Upper Midwest Bus and Corndog Tour that has claimed many of the very people who should now be in Washington trying to find ways to create jobs instead of barnstorming through small towns in full campaign mode talking about jobs.

Still a bit banged up and tired from the Mount Mat Madness Tournament over the weekend, the Boys' Latin wrestling team didn't get any sympathy from visiting McDonogh last night. Instead, No. 5 McDonogh took full advantage of favorable matchups and didn't let up for a second in an unexpectedly easy time over No. 10 Boys' Latin. Heavyweight Luis Gimenez, Joe Breen (119 pounds), Ricky Tippett (140) and Jesse Sataloff (160) scored pins, but it was the effort of Luke Rebertus (145) that best summed up the Eagles' 54-18 victory.

It appeared to be business as usual for three-time state wrestling champion Josh Asper in his season-opening match last week. When the 171-pound senior standout from Hereford came away with a first-period pin over Catonsville's Eric Swaboda on Dec. 11, he extended his undefeated streak to 51 matches to help lead the No. 7 Bulls to a win. When he left the mat, however, Asper was a little more tired than usual. "I could definitely tell I was breathing heavier than I should have been for the first period.
