Lost Last Month

December 2010

Jim Morrison's conviction for indecent exposure dating back to 1970, after Florida governor, Charlie Crist, posthumously pardons the singer. Brett Favre's record of consecutive regular-season starts, running since 1992 with a total of 297 games, due to an injury to his throwing shoulder. Don't Ask Don't Tell, repealed by the House. Nick Madoff, 46, son of Bernie Madoff, by suicide. Fuss over the Kindle, when a copy of Birds of America, by John James Audubon, sells at auction for a record $10.3 million. The WikiLeaks website, as the U.S. Government begin attempts to shut it down. The mystery of Julian Assange's whereabouts, when he is arrested in London for his alleged sexual misconduct in Sweden. Three decades' worth of great music, marked by the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s murder. Any possible financial concerns of a retired French electrician and his wife, when they reveal Pablo Picasso, for whom they installed burglar alarms in the 1970s, gifted them with 271 works.
