The problems of crime struck home for Torrance City Councilman Tim Mock on Friday when his wife's purse was snatched from inside their house as she unloaded groceries from her car. Colleen Mock told police that she first saw the thief standing in front of a liquor store at Crenshaw Boulevard and 166th Street, about one block from her house, as she drove home from the store about 8 p.m., and that he apparently followed her from there.

I enjoyed Jack Goulding's love song to the "Old Swede." I feel the same way about Lucky Pierre, my 1975 Peugeot. Pierre has performed well and with dignity. He has transported teen-aged boys back and forth to school, cats to the veterinarian, mountains of groceries home. He has gone 159,000-plus miles, has had few repairs and is still rarin' to go.
