This can only be called chutzpah. It seems thieves broke into an Ashdod museum this week and stole a bunch of valuable artifacts from an exhibit called "Antiquities Thieves in Israel". The exhibit showed loot that had been previously recovered from antiquities thieves. I guess the police will have to recover them again. You can read about it here. Actually the theft and reselling of antiquities is a real danger to the cultural heritage here and elsewhere. Don't buy any dubious antiquities - ever.

On a more positive note, Yuval pointed me this amazing guitar called the Misa Digital. This is what I want to make next, once I actually finish the ones currently in the pipe. Check it out, it's extraordinary.
