Watch out for the average-looking ones

The Chicago Tribune reports on an "average-looking couple" -- "the Midwestern type" -- who stole a $60,000 Rembrandt etching from a Chicago gallery on Sunday. The work, called "Adam and Eve," was taken from a "preview room" next to the receptionist's desk. The owner of the gallery says the piece was insured, "but not for its asking price."
