speaking of greek art, here’s some recent news on the parthenon sculptures that lord elgin, in cahoots with the turks, stole from greece. i must say that while it would be nice to have all the marbles back in athens (half are still there) and displayed together, i don’t have a lot of confidence in them building a museum worthy of them. i’ve seen their museums and, for the most part, they are amateurish and guarded by street-clothes-wearin morons. and we most recently have their modernization attempts for the 2004 olympics to go by, where the ioc threatens them and criticizes them on their slow progress practically every month.
