The Stuff That Dreams Are (Still) Made Of

In a not-so-surprising imitation of Dashiell Hammett's novel and the classic Bogart flick, someone has stolen a replica of the Maltese Falcon statue from a restaurant that Hammett used to frequent during his writing days. The restaurant's owner is offering a $25,000 reward for its safe return. If I owned something with Elisha Cook Jr.'s autograph on it and it were stolen, I'd be pretty peeved too.
