Apparently Yale finally agreed to give back the Machu Picchu artifacts:

And of course Yale's museum doesn't want anyone to get the idea that this is anything other than accommodating Peruvian patriotism, because they might have to give something else back. It only took HOW many decades? All I can see in it is a long-term "MINE MINE MINE!" fit on the part of the Peabody and Yale scholars. Where were these people's mothers? Heck, where were the lawyer's mothers?!

I admit being the oldest in my family makes me possibly overestimate the importance of drilling the concept of "NOT YOURS. STILL NOT YOURS." into children at a young age, along with "No, the fact that you have it now does NOT make it yours!" but c'mon.
