Bowers Museum Raided--Now Read its Blog!

Driving back from lunch at El Pollo de Oro, a friend noticed a plethora of news vans at the Bowers Museum.

"What's happening there?," he wondered out loud.

"Probably a new gems exhibit," I cracked.

Little did we know that Orange County's oldest private museum was raided by the feds this morning for illegally acquiring looted antiques. Amazing--an immigration raid in SanTana not involving Mexicans for once. Nothing to add right now except the blog of the Bowers Museum collection department.

Anyone wanna wager which ones did the Bowers folks get legitimately and which did they go Indy on?
