I was reading the co-blog of Stephen J. Dubner and Steven D. Levitt, authors of the book Freakonomics (which I listened to and enjoyed at the library some months back), and I came across a post about an interesting news article. The post, and subsequent article, caught my attention for two reasons. First, I notice anything German-related these days, particularly those things that involve my own direct experience. Secondly, the Berlin store involved in the heist, Kaufhaus Des Westens (KaDeWe), was the very same store I blogged about after my visit to Berlin. I think it’s pretty cool to have been to one of the places were one of the largest old-fashioned heists in recent times just took place, and the rest of the particular oddities surrounding the case just make it all the niftier.
