So today in Dallas they recovered a stolen painting. Here is part of the article, "Our specially trained investigators and attachés in more than 40 countries not only partner with governments, agencies and experts who share our mission to protect these items, but they train the investigators of other nations and agencies on how to find, authenticate and enforce the law to recover these items when they emerge in the marketplace.".

So they have SPECIALLY TRAINED people on this case and from around the world and I promise on my entire family's grave this is what happened this morning. My wife picked up her phone and this is what she heard, "Hi, where could I store a stolen painting?". Nothing about who this lady was or that she was from Homeland Security or what had happened..... this was before it was released to the public I guess because no one at the museum had a clue. So my wife said they would need to call a company called Displays. Then the lady asks if they could keep the painting in my wife's museum' vault. lmao Nooooooooo! You will need to call Displays because they specialize in this type of thing. The lady acted as if it could be stored in any ol' place. First, it needed to be checked over and dealt with accordingly for insurance reasons. It was after this that the lady on the other end explained about the stolen painting. Now I might add, Displays does this all over the world! Not just local, not just in the USA..... the entire WORLD!!! Wouldn't you think if Homeland Security is working with 40 other countries to do this type of thing, they would have a clue on what to do with something when they recover it. The US is in SOOOOOO much trouble. I bet if you put every government official together their IQ wouldn't amount to 7.

I went up to the museum later and as I was being told in the office what happened and I told them what my 1st question would have been when the lady asked where she could store a stolen painting..... Well, where did you steal it from? Even the director laughed at that one :rofl:

:roadblock::roadblock: If we are #1 in the world, the world is in BIG trouble! :roadblock::roadblock:

Are you sure they weren't just acting clueless to test your wife's museum to see if they were the kind of people who would go in cahoots with art thieves or if they would do the right thing?

I have no idea what I just read.
You should keep up with the world more MJ.

Well, to make it short.... The Assumption of the Virgin Mary was recovered in Dallas and Homeland Security called my wife thinking they could just take it over to the museum and store it there until they could figure out what to do with it. They are Homeland Security, shouldn't they have atleast 1 lick of sense?

It has to be condition checked, the insurance has to be notified, along with several other things that would need to happen before that piece is even moved!

Do I need to slow it down for anyone else? I know Braille so I can give it to you in Braille if needed.

That is exactly what she thought at first because the lady did not identify herself. So my wife called the director.

Well, not to go in to cahoots because her museum is one of the most trusted museums in the whole world but she thought something funny was happening.

No thank you, I pride myself on being ignorant to whatever hysteria the media feeds the world.

I also am not privy to your wife's job/career ...

That said, it's not news to me to hear that some government bureaucracy is grossly inept.

I'm sorry but this thread is lacking in efficiency or productive to the fast lane lifestyle members join to see. While I'm glad your painting was recovered I have no input as to the systems of homeland security or the disarray of (insert local region. )

Not only was this entire thread as hard to swim through as the lake of Lethe, I come out of it not blank and eager to learn, but with no news beneficial to humanity aside form a rant I could have found on evil blue or in the darkest of moments Buzzfeed.

I think in the future I'll stay away from the ''New'' button and sort by Hot. Thank you minivanman for that valuable lesson.
