Post J.K.Rowling restaurant plaque stolen

The Edinburgh Evening News reports that the plaque dedicated to J.K.Rowling, at the Buffet King restaurant in Edinburgh, has been stolen. The establishment, which used to be Nicolson's Cafe, is where Jo wrote much of Philosopher's Stone. The brass plaque had been placed there to dedicate the author.

Quote:
One restaurant worker said:

"It is only a small plaque and we didn't even know it had been stolen until someone pointed it out to us.

"We haven't contacted the police about it. It's probably a waste of time for them to even try and find out who stole it."

The city's culture leader, Deidre Brock, said: "I am hopeful that it is found and put back soon."
Another plaque, on the outside of the building, is still in place.

I could just imagine it was a die-hard crazed fan, or drunken students doing it for a laugh.

It's a shame that when things are nailed down, they still aren't safe.

That's awful. It's not even like JK autographed the plaque or something....it was just a plaque some normal, everyday person made. I understand that it's still important, but there was really nothing gained by stealing it. Grrr...

It just seems kind of ridiculous in a silly kind of way ...

I mean seriously. It's a plaque. I know there's a black market for stolen artworks but this wouldn't even qualify as a statue? *zoinks*
