Empty-Handed, Empty-Headed — What’s the Difference?

Thieves smashed through the front door of a nail salon in Atlanta, Ga. Their target: a 42" flat-screen TV. But the burglars couldn’t figure out how to get it out of its wall bracket, and left empty-handed. They must have thought about it, because they came back the next night, smashed through the newly repaired door, and tried again, but still couldn’t get it. So they went a few doors down to the Comcast Cable office; surely they had a TV! They did, and as the burglars were carrying it toward the door, the burglar alarm went off. Startled, the thieves dropped it and ran. (RC/Atlanta Journal-Constitution) ...All that, just to see reruns of “Hee Haw”?
