The Scream is gone

A pair of armed men have stolen Edvard Munch's iconic painting, The Scream.

The museum had essentially no security beyond guards. The painting was hung by thin wire that was not connected to an alarm. The security cameras were useless since the men wore ski masks. The whole thing is really ridiculous when you consider that is not the first time that an original version of this painting has been stolen.
