Returning That 2,500-Year-Old Italian Vase
February 6th, 2006

An editorial in the New York Times believes the Metropolitan Museum of Art is doing the right thing by returning the 2,500-year-old Euphronios krater (a mixing bowl) and several other antiquities to Italy, because the Italian government has demonstrated to the museum’s satisfaction the likelihood that they were stolen. The Times decries the notorious corrupt antiquities market and its ceaseless cultural ransacking.

    Congratulations on having one of the most sophisticated blogs Ive come across in some time! Its just incredible how very much you can take away from some thing simply because of how visually beautiful it is. Youve put together a great weblog space –great graphics, videos, layout. This is unquestionably a must-see weblog!

    How is it that just anybody can write a weblog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said anything incredibly impressive –more like youve painted a fairly picture through an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, right here. But do you really think that you can get away with adding some pretty pictures and not definitely say anything?
