  • Here’s a gem of New Deal history I didn’t know. From “Today in History,” Opelika-Auburn News, 18 January 2007:

    In 1943, a wartime ban on the sale of pre-sliced bread in the U.S. – aimed at reducing bakeries’ demand for metal replacement parts – went into effect.

  • According to the FBI and Interpol, art fraud is currently “the world’s third-largest crime problem behind drugs and weapons dealing.”
