One the whole, I'm not that mad about it

While I was reading this story about a modern art museum robbery in Sao Paulo, Brazil, it struck me that an artist might be pleased to find out that his painting had been stolen in a major heist. I certainly would be smugly happy to know that my work had caused such a commotion. There's a little Helen of Troy in each of us.

It also strikes me that imitation is not the highest form of flattery. Theft is.
