Extra! Extra! Ruby slippers stolen! Little girl from Kansas stranded forever? Munchkins outraged!

Details here:

Dorothy's sequined ruby slippers aren't in Judy Garland's hometown of Grand Rapids, Minn., anymore. But they're all over the Internet, depicted on T-shirts and in the prayers of at least one surviving Munchkin. "Doesn't the person who stole those ruby slippers know that they aren't good for anybody else, that they only worked for Dorothy?" Margaret Pellegrini, one of nine surviving Munchkins from the 1939 classic film "The Wizard of Oz," said Tuesday from her home in Glendale, Ariz. Investigator Steve Bennet said Grand Rapids police are following a "couple of new leads," concerning the 66-year-old, size 5½ slippers, which were stolen last month from the northern Minnesota community's Children's Discovery Museum.

I hope the thief hasn't eloped to Texas with them. Rita might drop a house on him and send him permanently to Oz.

I understand the cops are looking for a woman with a greenish pallor to her skin; at this time, witness reports of flying monkeys are considered unreliable.
