Police are looking for a man who allegedly stole a surveillance camera that had filmed him standing outside a pet clinic early on Feb. 14. The man was apparently loitering about 5:47 a.m. in the rear of Parkview Pet Clinic in the 1500 block of Canada Boulevard, according to Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot. But then he spotted a mounted security camera, which happened to have filmed him. That's when police said he approached the camera, removed it and stole it. While no similar thefts were reported that day in the neighborhood, Lightfoot said police are unclear about what he was doing in the area.

When I retired five years ago after a career as a rather maverick newspaperman bristling at the restraints of corporate journalism, I vowed to speak what was in my heart and to say “yes” to just about everything. Being a yes-man instead of a naysayer has worked out wonderfully for the most part, but it has also gotten me into some awkward situations as it did when Leslie Dutton - the woman behind the Full Disclosure Network's public access video investigative reporting - asked me to play the role of George Washington in full costume at her annual fundraising event this President's Day weekend.

Dear Frank, It pains me to write this. Last year I wrote to you, pleading with you to give us back our Los Angeles Dodgers and show yourself out of town. On behalf of all Angelenos who bleed Dodger blue, I implored you to do what you knew in your money-loving, American Express Black Card, bankrupt heart was best, and make a few hundred million dollars for yourself and your ex-wife by selling our team. And this week, you did it.* So here's the hard part. (deep breath)
