A tractor-trailer rig loaded with computer parts worth $200,776 was stolen from a Camarillo business, authorities said Tuesday. The theft was the third such crime in as many months, leading authorities to believe that a ring operating out of Los Angeles is repeatedly striking in the Ventura County area. "Not just anybody can take a truck and trailer and disappear," Ventura County Sheriff's Sgt. Keith Lazz said. "This requires some organization obviously."

'AT AGE 50 every man has the face he deserves," George Orwell once observed. But even the author of "1984" didn't anticipate that by 1988 cosmetics manufacturers would be promising men youth in a bottle. Even though the wave of so-called anti-aging treatments for women is still building, grooming companies have already begun to offer men gels and lotions to plump wrinkles as well as newfangled foams and liquids to cover gray hair.

Once upon a time, there were three beautiful angels with massive wings. Only the wings weren't attached to their shoulders.
