Art Museum Heist in The Netherland's Rotterdam

So, just for you Capital District residents out there, this happened in Rotterdam in Europe not in Schenectady County.
It would be kinda cool to have a museum with Matisse, Monet, Gauguin, etc's work (oh wait, we do at the Clark Museum) but in this case you see what can happen when you have valuable works of art in one place.
According to the New York Times, art by Picasso and a few impressionist painters were stolen on Tuesday.
Possibly hundreds of millions of dollars in art could have been pilfered. Kinda similar to when The Scream was stolen in Oslo.
(One of the pieces stolen on Tuesday in Rotterdam - Henri Matisse's "Reading Girl in White and Yellow")
