Over at Gothamist, there's an interview with a shoplifter who claims he's been boosting roughly $100 worth of groceries a week from places like Whole Foods for six or seven years now. The man seems to take a lot of pride in his work. On whether he feels any guilt: "Absolutely not, it’s a job like any other job; it requires professionalism, requires effort, requires time. It’s not an easy thing. And there's a certain amount of risk, like any venture that you get into, any business you get into." We're sure Whole Foods feels the same way. [Gothamist]
