In another twist to an already bizarre story, the founder of the McAfee anti-virus software company contacted an American journalist Tuesday to maintain his innocence and chronicle how he has been evading police. John McAfee, 67, has been missing since Sunday morning, when his next-door neighbor Gregory Faull, 52, was found dead in a pool of blood in a Belize beachfront home.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Just one thing went wrong for the thieves during Sunday's daring theft from the Pretoria Art Museum, which netted about $2 million worth of famous South African works. One of the paintings was too big to fit with the three robbers into their getaway car, a Toyota Avanza. So they left the piece, "Two Malay Musicians" by Irma Stern , on the sidewalk and sped off with five other works. The painting by Stern, one of the country's best known artists, was the most valuable of the works taken from the museum, worth around $1.5 million.

Question: In a matter unrelated to our association, the manager of our gated community has been sued by a third party. He also has an office inside our gated community. At our board meeting he said that he had instructed our association's security guards not to let the process server in to serve him and that the party suing him had in fact attempted to serve him but left the summons with the security guard. He was laughing and said that does not mean he has been served as the guard is not "an agent" of his. One owner who has been sued in the past has been served several times by process servers, so the guards do let servers into our complex to serve other people.

One thing became clear in the second week of the Lakers' exhibition season: Smush happens. As if the revitalized Lakers lineup wasn't enough of a headline generator, former Laker Smush Parker fired back at Kobe Bryant after being verbally cuffed by him. Parker, starting point guard for the Lakers from 2005 through 2007, said Bryant was mean to his teammates. Or maybe just to Parker. "What I personally don't like about him is the man that he is, his personality, how he treats people," Parker told Hard 2 Guard radio.

Steve Jobs' Palo Alto home that was burglarized last month for more than $60,000 worth of items has served as a mecca for Apple fans since his passing last year. But it was also an easy target. The Apple co-founder's home, which is located on a quiet street, was used by Apple fans immediately after his death as a gathering ground for vigils and memorials, but months after his passing, Apple users still kept visiting the home. The Los Angeles Times reported earlier this year that people have taken trips from as far away as Hong Kong and Italy to stop by the home, which is easily accessible.
