Has everyone heard The Scream has been stolen!

There is a family of turtles that live in the window of my neighborhood flower shop. Anytime I am on that particular block I make an effort to go to the window and just peer in on them for a few moments. I like to look at them swimming and enjoying the sun. That usually subdues my wanting turtles.

Yeah I heard about the Scream being stolen. It's my favorite painting too :-(. I have a small print of it packed away someplace. Appararantly Edvard Munch did 4 of them and this is the 2nd one to be stolen. They also stole one of his other paintings called the Madonna.

Did they ever find that one?

If I remember correctly the people who stole it couldn't find anyone willing to buy it, so they wound up destroying it :-(

According to that article that was linked the last one stolen was held for a million dollar ransom and the gov't wouldn't pay. they eventually found it and arrested three men.
