Saving Buddha (and others)

It’s not a new idea that ancient statues are getting destroyed. Maybe it’s because I’m a pack rat, maybe it’s because I like old things, but I wish they weren’t being busted, beaten, stolen (or otherwise pirated), hacked up, sold on the black market, etc. (Note: see the movie Ong-Bak for a general idea of naughty artifact thieves – and subsequent revenge.)
