And from the world of art...

Robbers steal $160m in art from Zurich.

High profile art heists are all the rage now. Its like the only adrenaline pumping theft left. See stealing art is better than stealing money. But only if you have two things going in your favor. One: if you are in it for the money, you better be able sell what you stole fast. The second thing is if you actually like art. Ever see the updated version of The Thomas Crown Affair after Bronson's character steals the San Giorgio Maggiore at dusk by Monet? Just takes it home to enjoy it in his study all by himself. I bet there is more than one piece of popular art being admired in this fashion.
