The Associated Press: Student leaves $172,000 violin on Philly-bound bus

23 12 2011
It’s long since been an assertion that there’s a fine line between genius and madness. Love and hate too, but that’s a different subject for a different day. Riding the 11 floors up to my office in the lift, I am briefly entertained and/or educated by one of those screens showing news headlines. This one caught my eye.
According to Associated Press:
A student at a Boston conservatory left a rare violin worth $172,000 on a bus after arriving in Philadelphia, and police are asking for the public’s help in getting it back. [Fat chance! Probably in Georgia, duelling with the Devil by now!]

The New England Conservatory student got on a Megabus in Boston with the 176-year-old violin but got off without it late Tuesday, police said.

Hm… Hope she’s insured.
