What a Shame!!!!

So evidently some drunk morons broke into the Musee Dorsay in Paris & vandalized a famous Monet painting. Link to the article here. I got to visit Paris when I was about 17 years old, and the Musee Dorsay was my favorite of the museums we got to visit. All the paintings Monet did are beautiful, and while this isn't my favorite of his work, it's still an absolute shame that folks would do something like that. *shaking head*

Makes me wonder at the idiocy of folks who would put their fists through this: *sigh* Again, just finding it a terrible shame. I hope these idiots are caught & find it very hard to continue life in Paris after trying to ruin artwork like that.

What could posess someone to do something like that! In a way I can understand theft, but to destroy a work of beauty? Just for the sake of wrecking it? I just don't understand.
