Thanks for mentioning my blog post.

Madison Theater is special and it deserves to do well. If you haven't been since the remodel, do go see a movie and (of course) have some popcorn!

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
