Mona Lisa Still Smiles

According to YahooNews, on August 2 a Russian woman smuggled in a ceramic cup into the Louvre and threw it at the Mona Lisa. Why? Because she was frustrated that she didn't get approved to become a French National. It makes sense if you're a crazy Russian woman desperate to be a French citizen. I don't know why she decided to attack a piece of art to show frustration over citizenship.

Anyway, the Mona Lisa was not harmed.

Makes sense--Mona's Italian but she's been living in France for centuries now. Anybody seen her French citizenship papers? :)

HAhaha, I was hoping someone would point that out. And thanks to French labor laws, she's can't be fired from the Louvre.

I am curious to find out what blog system you happen to be
working with? I'm experiencing some minor security problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any solutions?
