Two banks, six minutes. Even by the standards set in Baltimore, Frederick McMillan was prolific. The 39-year-old, after being freed from federal prison for, you guessed it, robbing a bank, returned to his old habits and quickly made up for lost time. He held up 10 banks over 25 days last July. Police say that 47 banks were robbed in Baltimore City in 2009, meaning this one suspect was responsible for nearly 20 percent of all the holdups in one year. McMillan started his spree July 2 at the M&T Bank on West Baltimore Street, which would net him his second-largest haul — $4,097.

A 43-year-old man who police say held up a bank in Pikesville is being sought for questioning. Baltimore County police said Tuesday that they have obtained an arrest warrant for Curtis Maurice Wright of the 3400 block of Walbrook Ave. in Baltimore. In a statement, the department said Wright robbed the SunTrust Bank at 103 Reisterstown Road on Dec. 23. Detectives said a man entered the bank, walked up to a teller and, implying that he was armed, demanded money. The teller gave him an undisclosed amount of cash.

A former BB&T Bank teller supervisor who prosecutors say stole more than $200,000 for online gambling, lottery tickets and trips to casinos and resorts in Atlantic City pleaded guilty Monday to embezzling over an 18-month period.

Ricky Gervais has cast himself perfectly as the hero of "The Invention of Lying." Playing mild-mannered Mark Bellison, the first fellow to practice the art of prevarication in an alternate world where everyone tells the truth, he's a master of covert-ops entertainment. He uses his deceptively mild voice and liquid gaze to shift emotional gears without clanking. As the aspiring writer-actor in "Extras," he always seemed to be carrying on a conversation with himself while also talking to others.

A young man wearing a Detroit Tigers cap, a T-shirt with an easily identifiable slogan, chatting on his cell phone.

Looking at the history of runaway government spending, a disturbing pattern is readily discernible: There is never a lack of observers at a given time who understand the severity of the trouble at hand, but these people lack the power to cut costs and avert calamity. An observer at the time of Imperial Spain's unwinding more than three centuries ago commented on the failure of every attempt at real reform, writing, "Those who can will not and those who will cannot." This truism is tested time and again through history.
