The Toronto Symphony Orchestra musician who left his violin at a streetcar stop will be getting it today. The Toronto Star has the full story here.

Is it just me, or does anyone else get a bit of an awkward feeling about the circumstances while reading it?

I'm not going to anything except this: wouldn't it have been more
honourable to point out to the homeless woman that she had in her posession a valuable violin, and that there was a reward attached? $1000 would have paid for a lot of coffee and smokes, or perhaps failing that, rent.

Anyway...a least it's a happy story for the TSO violinist.
