Old News

You might not know it from reading the AP Report, but the haul of antiquities Italian police have displayed in Rome likely were seized back in 2002 and 2005 raids in Switzerland. The larger question is whether cash-strapped Italy would be better served selling off at least some of these materials rather than holding onto large numbers of similar artifacts.

Without meaning to be flippant, perhaps the artifacts should be sold and the money raised spent on sending Paul Barford and Nigel Swift to charm school. Manners, after all, maketh man.

Warm regards
