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.

WOW! That was really unnecessary. There was no need to steal that plaque.
Probably some losers who just wanted to make some money.

It's probably the same kind of people that steal street signs.
They can't really do anything with it and stealing it just makes everyone upset.


This is why we can't have nice things

The thing is that it's such a stupid thing to steal. If the person tries to sell it on ebay, it will be stopped within like five minutes because of how obvious it would be.
