Looks like Shakespeare’s plays are super hot items for art thieves and uber-rich kleptomaniacs. Just wondering who stole the title page and thirty other pages of this Shakespeare Folio and how much did they get for them.
That missing title page must have Stratford on Avon’s name on it… lol
How much of Le Pen’s open letter is for domestic political consumption in France? I think it is wise to assume that people who push an agenda may have an agenda of their own — namely gaining political power — and they will use any means available to get it. What makes anyone think Le Pen or this rumor of a cancelled airplane contract is anything other than posturing for the media? She may or may not have a legitimate desire for an audit, or she may just be pushing a threatening agenda to get a better payoff for people in power. What kind of deal can she cut with the ECB if she agrees to shut up?
