Pretty much every news outlet is running this story about how men in ski masks walked into a private museum in Zurich and in three minutes made off with works by Cezanne, Degas, van Gogh and Monet were valued at about $163.2 million.
I know this isn't outdoors related, but there's something very appealing about a story like this. My wife is a criminal defense attorney, and from what I can tell, most crime isn't a result of clever, devious planning. It's a result of foolish impulsiveness. Criminals are stupid. They do things like steal aluminum poles from work, then try to sell them at the scrap yard and get caught because they are stupid. There isn't even usually malice involved. Just stupidity. So it's intriguing when a well-executed, obviously smart caper like this happens. I appreciate people who do their homework.
