Elgin Marbles

An interesting article about the Elgin Marble debate (from the NY Times). I've always been unsure about exactly where I come down on this issue. I'm passionate about the evil of looting antiquities (which steals irreplaceable history from all of us), but on the other hand these would have been long ago destroyed if they weren't taken to England 200 years ago. On the other hand, things are different now, especially with this new museum....
