An affront to the Nation!

I picked this up from the Greenwich Times out of Connecticut:

OYSTER BAY, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities are hunting for the person who stole a 15-inch walrus tusk from Theodore Roosevelt's home on Long Island.
The superintendent of the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, Thomas Ross, says it was one of a pair displayed on a fireplace mantel. It was discovered missing Feb. 22.
Old Brookville, N.Y., police and the National Park Service are investigating. The FBI has added the tusk to its national stolen art list.
In 2006, a man pleaded guilty to stealing Roosevelt's revolver. It was returned to the historical site in Oyster Bay, N.Y.

 Will they destroyers of America never stop?

I certainly hope they find whoever did this.

And, hopefully, these haters of America will be brought to justice.

Hi Albert,
Seems like you get your share of small minded idiots on that side of the pond as well. Hope that justice is served soon.
