A Picasso painting stolen back in 2001 was recovered by customs this past weekend at the Newark airport. The piece, entitled “La Coiffeuse,” was worth more than $2.5 million at the time it was stolen. It is set to be returned to the French government after legal matters are settled. (

The world really does not appear to be just one big canvas… at least that seems to be the view held by HuffPost and numerous environmentalists.
