I know you guys have all been worried about the ongoing case regarding Canada’s massive maple syrup theft. In September, millions of pounds of maple syrup went missing from Quebec’s strategic syrup reserves, and a few weeks later it was recovered (in a syrup processing facility, so I still don’t understand how they recognized it — shouldn’t that be a Purloined Letter situation?).
