The internet has been set ablaze with news pertaining to the latest scandal.
A necklace from the Titanic exhibit has been stolen.
Based on the article I read, the necklace was worn by survivor-Eleanor Widener of Philadelphia. She was travelling with her husband, George and their son, Harry. But the males of her family would be listed among the deceased that fateful April night. There was a story that her son would have survived, but as he was getting into the lifeboat, he took it upon himself to preserve a rare edition of "Bacon's Essay's" (1598) which had been left behind in his cabin. He got out to fetch it. When he returned, all the lifeboats were gone. "The boats are gone!"
I really hope Catherine Zeta and Sean Connery were involved in this heist. Even if they weren't, I hope somebody at least had to perform an intense maneuver through a field of lasers in order to reach the modest necklace.
Though modest and valued at $20,000, it is priceless because of its history. If it is ever recovered, it may have a more notable reputation like the Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa (1911), or Edvard Munch's The Scream (1994). I believe they have both been stolen and retrieved, yet I wonder if they were as notorious, and widely acclaimed prior to being abducted.
Is it just me or does anyone else have an urge to watch The Thomas Crown Affair?
Those slippers were stolen shortly after our visit and as of 2011 have still not been recovered.
I just want to know, why is this girl holding a shoe to her head?!?
