Important painting by French cubist Fernand Leger, worth roughly $3 million, goes missing. Most likely chucked in a dumpster during a renovation at Wellesley College.

The funny subtext is that the painting had been loaned to, then returned by, the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Between the lines it’s clear that hoity-toity Wellesley was just itching to blame the disappearance on those dumb-ass Sooners – but the Oklahoma folks followed cataloguing procedure, so their hands are clean.
