With all the furor over the seriousness of perjury in Zippergate, I recall not long ago the chief executive officers of the major tobacco companies, testifying under oath before Congress and making statements that turned out in at least a dozen cases to be inaccurate. I can't find out what jail they're in for perjury. Bill King Philadelphia Call Voicebox, the Inquirer voice opinion line, 24 hours a day at 215-854-4405.

If the burglars had known better, they might have smiled, being that their crime was caught on "Candid Camera"-style videotape. The Northeast Police Detective Division said the thieves were filmed in an early morning smash- and-grab burglary at the Ports of the World department store on Godfrey Avenue near Rising Sun Avenue in Crescentville on Thursday. Karl Francis, 34, of the 5900 block of North 6th Street, and Robert Mount, 26, of the 5500 block of North 3rd Street, were arrested at 8 a.m. Thursday when police stopped their car at Whitaker and Wyoming avenues.

"At Close Range" premiered almost 15 years ago, but it's making a comeback. The recent escape of Norman Johnston has increased video rentals of this Sean Penn/Christopher Walken drama, which is based on the crimes committed by Johnston and his brothers in the late 1970s. "It hasn't been rented for months until now," said James Been, 17, an employee at Video Village in Holmesburg. "People want to rent it because it's a big thing that's happened in the area," and some are "intrigued to learn more about the story," said Derek Lauver, an employee at Country Video in Chester County.

When four men robbed a service station on East Street Road on May 29, the crime was caught on videotape by a surveillance camera. The camera caught the sawed-off shotgun and the .38-caliber handgun used in the robbery. It captured the men ordering the attendant to lie on the ground and their taking $300 from the cash register. It even taped one man eyeballing the camera, while taking a mask off his face. Thanks to help from the Abington Police Department, four men, all from Willow Grove, had been arrested by last week.

Robert Preziosi, principal at Parkview Elementary School in Westville, sat in Jane Wheeler's fourth-grade class last week and asked a question. "How many of you have seen publicity about missing children?" All the students raised their hands. "I think there are two sides to it," Preziosi continued. "We certainly wouldn't want it to happen to anyone here. We know you don't get in strangers' cars or do stupid things like that. But we also know there's not a stranger behind every tree.

Videotape equipment should replace stenographers to keep official court records in New Jersey, according to the recommendations of a state Supreme Court committee report released yesterday. Spokesmen for court reporters said the panel's proposals required additional study. The 63-page report by the Supreme Court Committee on Court Reporting suggested that each of the 21 counties begin by recording proceedings on videotape in at least one courtroom. The timetable for the switch would be determined by the high court.

Though summer is the traditional season of frivolous movie fun, finding a diamond in the fluff is not impossible. There's usually at least one movie of substance. This is convenient: when your hip friends ask if you've seen anything worthwhile, you can answer honestly. This year, the hip summer flick looks to be an independent, low-budget, lower-case comedy called "sex, lies and videotape. " Shot for just $1.2 million in Baton Rouge, La., the film is billed as long on dialogue and short on action - a thoughtful, reflective movie in the "Return of the Secaucus Seven" vein.

Township supervisors have given up in their attempts to stop a local attorney from videotaping public meetings. Although attorney John Van Luvanee asked the courts to step in, Bucks County Court Judge Cynthia Weaver declined. For the last month, the township and Van Luvanee have clashed over Van Luvanee's attempts to videotape township meetings. "We've never prevented him from taping," Township Supervisor Ray Stepnoski said. "He just has to conform to township requirements.

The two 17-year-old boys were charged with felony aggravated assault and criminal conspiracy. "Those charges accurately reflect their conduct," said Assistant District Attorney Paul Goldman. Key to the case was a graphic videotape made by the defendants of the beating and the events that led up to it. After viewing the videotape, Common Pleas Judge Lori Dumas said she was shocked and embarrassed for the defendants and their families, according to Goldman.

The sounds of a pumped-up production crew getting ready for a taping resounded in the small confines of the public-access cable studio at Conestoga High School in Tredyffrin. "Nice, nice. . . . Hold it there. . . . Freeze that. Tighten it up so it will stay," director Judy Tilles told the woman behind Camera 2 as other workers scurried about preparing the set. "OK.

ROGER GOODELL would have done well to rip a page from the NCAA playbook. Throw the book at Ray Rice back in February as the NCAA originally did to Penn State, and Goodell would not be where he is right this minute, homina-homina homina-ing through his latest questionable assertions, he and his integrity painted by his own messy brush into the smallest of corners. Play offense right away. Or you will be playing defense for a long time. How does he get out now? Damned if I know.

As a crime-fighting strategy, Philadelphia police need to be worrying more about making repairs to video surveillance cameras that don't work, rather than hassling citizens who happen to point a functioning cellphone camera their way. The 200 anticrime cameras posted around the city should be helping police nab the bad guys, but as many as one in four are down for maintenance. Meanwhile, far too many police officers seem to be camera shy when they have no legal right to be. Despite a directive issued more than a year ago by Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey that officers could be videotaped legally while performing their jobs, the Police Department last week was hit with the first of several federal lawsuits by a rights group that contends officers have intimidated and arrested people who tried to videotape them.

But who shot Woodard in the back of the head and why remained a mystery on Tuesday as police studied security videotape of the unidentified gunman and delved into Woodard's checkered past for clues. The brazen slaying of a 31-year-old visitor from Los Angeles "certainly appears to have been planned," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told reporters.
