This article in today's L.A. Times shows what a good source of ideas newspaper articles can be for writers. In this case, I saw it in the paper, tried to get it from the L.A. Times website and it didn't come up no matter what search term I used. So I scanned it and saved it in my "Idea" file.
This 73-year-old jewel thief explains it away with the closing line, "It's the way we are. We got nothing better to do. We got around to talking."
Great for a geezer mystery or crime caper.
