  1. I am a writer at Boston Magazine and am writing a story updating the Forbes Smiley case -- looking at what happened to him, what happened to the maps he stole, and how his case changed the world of antique maps. I would love to get your thoughts as well as contacts for other people who might be interested in talking about this. Any of your readers who would like to speak to me can contact me directly at michael@michaelblanding.com
