Winona Ryder Was a Trend-Setter

Dallas Parkway-based Leadsonline.com got an awfully nice plug in today's New York Times piece about the rise in shoplifting during The Great Depression II: Electric Boogaloo. And what, exactly, does the company do? Helps retailers and law enforcement officials track stolen goods as they surface online and elsewhere; hence the photo in The Times of Cherise Godwin giving Dallas police a how-to before they give thieves the what-for. And it's only gonna get worse, says the prez of the site: He reports that "his company had seen a 50 percent increase over the last year in the number of shoplifting investigations handled by the company." In other news, I miss Winona Ryder. --Robert Wilonsky
