How to Commit a Crime and Get Applause

You already know one way: "Catch me If You Can" was a successful movie.

But here's the other: illegally tape phone conversations with people you meet, and gain the confidence of. Some of them might go on to be famous, and then you can have articles published in the New York Times lauding your courage.

Is it really courage, though? After all, illegal taping is easy to do, and since you don't tell the person you're taping, it looks consequence-free, and you get so much publicity out of it. Really.

But you know the other side? Nobody calls you any more.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
