Would You Want This in YOUR Living Room?

Turns out that the person who bought Edvard Munch's Skrik ("The Scream") back in May for a record-setting $120 million was private-equity firm owner, Leon Black. Black runs Apollo Global Management. (If I were a shareholder, I'd be asking some pointed questions about now. Black is a billionaire. Did he use his money for this...or mine?)

"Scream" has the peculiar distinction of being a popular painting to steal. (Actually, there are at least four different versions available for theft -- robbers, take note.)
      I hope Black has good insurance...
