Art for Drugs


No, the Mexican cartels are not getting into the art business (at least not yet). The Boston Globe reported today that a Yale professor who learned to paint with his left hand after part of his right hand was ripped away in an explosion by the Unabomber will get back two beloved paintings that were recently stolen.

New Haven police said Monday a weekend raid of a home where drugs were allegedly sold has turned up 39 pieces of stolen art, including two paintings believed to belong to Unabomber victim David Gelernter. The art was stolen from the Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale and the public library and traded for drugs.

The New Haven Independent has the complete story.
