Who stole a Rembrandt and other  $$$$ paintings from a Boston museum decades ago? " Maybe "a bumbling confederation of Boston gangsters and out-of-state Mafia middlemen, many now long dead.
In 1990, 13 artworks — including Rembrandts, a Vermeer and a Manet — were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. A quarter-century later, the hunt continues.

Fun. Do you live in beer country or wine country? I'm surprised by the wine lovers. Sure, we're crazy up in the Pacific NW, but who knew about the south? "There are an improbable number of winemaking outfits in Oklahoma, and no small number in Florida. Think about this for a minute. It means that one day, somebody sat down and said "I bet people would like to drink Florida wine." And not just one somebody, but dozens of them!"
