Heads Roll

Or at least a head:

"David Mickenberg has resigned as director of Wellesley College's Davis Museum and Cultural Center, two weeks after news broke that the museum's prized 1921 painting by Fernand Léger had gone missing."

Geoff Edgers has the full story in the Boston Globe. Richard Lacayo notes that "the AWOL Leger wasn't mentioned in the announcement yesterday by Wellesley President H. Kim Bottomly that Mickenberg was leaving, but it's fair to suppose the two developments might be connected."
