I'm sure you heard about the 1715 Lipinski Stradivarius violin stolen on January 27th in Milwaukee. It's been found in the Bay View neighborhood. It appears to be in perfect condition — and is expected to be returned to its owner soon.
Why am I mentioning it? They found it one block from my house. Police and everyone else crowded the street. Wow. We are really a quiet neighborhood but what a way to make ourselves know to the world.
The violin has been returned intact to the owner.
