Crime doesn't pay, but cooperating with the authorities can pay off. That seems to be a lesson in the case of the "Yuppie Five," the young Wall Street professionals nabbed two years ago as an insider trading ring. Two of the former defendants are now selling cars, a third has been driving a cab and another is trying to make his way as a financial consultant. But the ring member who secretly taped his confederates to gather evidence for authorities has been cleared to practice law in two states.

Army Sgt. Michael David P. Cardenaz was a larger-than-life figure, those who knew him say. A bald, bull of a guy, Cardenaz told a Colorado reporter in 2009 that he was an "old-school" soldier. By then, he said, he had twice been hit by shrapnel, and had survived what he described as dozens of close calls with improvised explosive devices and rocket-propelled grenades. And a fellow soldier had died in his arms, he said. Cardenaz was awarded numerous medals and commendations for his military service, including a Bronze Star.

Two Wall Street arbitrage firms and three individuals were indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday on conspiracy and securities fraud charges in a case stemming from the so-called Yuppie Five insider trading investigation begun in 1986. The indictment appears to be a further indication of Manhattan U.S. Atty. Rudolph W. Giuliani's willingness to indict Wall Street firms and not just employees in the recent crackdown on Wall Street corruption.

Kamen's "Concerto" is a murky, three-movement tour through a series of orchestrated film music settings. Little of any technical significance is demanded of soloist Sanborn, who plays, nonetheless, with a warmer, less-pinched tone than is often the case on his own recordings. Four other Kamen pieces--all titled with women's names--are sometimes laid-back to the point of somnolence.

Almost immediately after she deposited herself in a corner booth at L'Espalier, the restaurant at Boston's Mandarin Oriental Hotel on the December afternoon after the first American date of her Monster Ball tour, Lady Gaga made a confounding statement. "I don't see myself as ever being like anybody else," said the 23-year-old known to her mom (eating lunch nearby) as Stefani Germanotta. "I don't see myself as an heir." Yet there she was, in a blond Hollywood bob and black tuxedo-bra combo much like the costumes Madonna wore 20 years ago, discussing a show that conjures the spirits of Michael Jackson, David Bowie and the punk-rock drag queens of downtown New York and promoting music -- the newly expanded edition of her 2008 debut album, "The Fame," greatly enriched by eight new songs and repackaged as "The Fame Monster" -- that pays blatant homage to ABBA, Queen, Eurodisco and Marilyn Manson.
