Thomas Beller Tracks iPhone Snatchers of Black Pearl, and Writes About It


Here at NoDef, we've chronicled the iPhone Snatchers of New Orleans, but rarely do we get the inside story of these "enterprising little criminals," with details about where they hang out, and what books their victims leave behind when they take back their phones. Over at the New Yorker's Page Turner blog, Tulane's Thomas Beller (who's no stranger to stalking) describes getting his iPhone stolen from a bench, and his effort to track down those darn kids in Black Pearl, give them a literary education and ignore warnings about getting shot in the process. Read the whole thing here.


Mosca's Owner, John Mosca, Passes


If it weren't for the smell of garlic, Mosca's may be undetectable on a drive down Highway 90 toward Avondale. The same could be said for the leadership style of John Mosca, the famed roadhouse's founder and owner, who died yesterday at the age of 86, Da Paper reports.  As Calvin Trillin relayed in a New Yorker article last year, Mosca and his wife didn't even close the place down to go to the Big Apple and pick up their prestigious James Beard award.
