If You've Got the Inclination, I've Got the Crime

Crime was all over the pages of the LA Times this morning -- ranging from two Aussie sailors who allegedly brawled with a man in San Diego over the merits of Australian versus American football; to a family -- ages 5 through 59 -- accused of shoplifting together in Lodi; to the rookie trader for the Societe Generale bank in France who is accused of a crime that would flabbergast a James Bond villain: gambling -- and losing $7.2 BILLION of the bank's assets in purportedly unauthorized trades. No word on whether the Pet Shop Boys' song "Opportunities" was playing on his IPod when he allegedly did it.
