"The Marriage of Heaven and Hell"

A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.
Albert Einstein

Bill Warren made one of the better yard sale deals we’ve seen when he purchased what looks a lot like a Tasmanian tiger pelt for $5.
The Tasmanian tiger, despite its colloquial name, was a marsupial that looked more like a dog than anything else.  It was discovered by Western science around the year 1800, and the last known member of the species died in captivity in 1936.  The last real thylacine pelt sold at auction for $68,000.
