LEILA FADEL, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. When New Mexico college student Conrad Duran came home to find his old dining chairs missing from outside his garage, he blamed the work of a thief.

An anonymous note mentioned doing good for others - a lesson we can all take into the new year. It's MORNING EDITION.
