Norman Maltz, in a T-shirt and baggy pants, was wrapping up yet another call with a frantic liquor store owner. "Take care and be safe," he said. "Oh, don't stay and defend the store. . . . If there's trouble, just get out." Maltz insures liquor stores--one of the first and favorite targets of looters in the riots that began Wednesday. His N.J. Maltz Insurance Services on Reseda Boulevard in Northridge covers 500 to 600 stores in Los Angeles, about 100 in the areas hardest hit by rioting.
