Dorothy's Ruby Slippers Stolen!
| Not that it's earth shattering news, but yesterday, according to the Associated Press, someone stole a pair of Dorothy's slippers from the Grand Rapids, Minnesota Children's Discovery Museum
Why Grand Rapids? Well, because that was Judy Garland's birthplace
| The Children's Museum is adjacent to Ms. Garland's childhood home |
The slippers are owned by a Los Angeles man and insured for more than $1 million | Four pairs of slippers worn by Garland in the movie are known to exist. One pair sold at auction in 2000 for $666,000 | I would venture to guess that whomever stole them is certainly not
a friend of Dorothy's
My question now is, if she couldn't take them off in OZ, how'd they get into the museum in the first place?
