Gold Rush

Thieves stole a 220-pound block of gold worth more than $2 million from a Japanese museum in broad daylight on Sunday. The piece was apparently "unguarded by sensors or even a case because [the museum] wanted visitors to be able to touch it." A local police officer is quoted as saying, "I suppose they could have been a little more careful." Gee, ya think?
