Mystery in Melville * **

Three gold Pulitzer prizes are missing from a Newsday safe and reports are that the the missing medals may have been sold for a total of $15,500 last Friday at a Long Beach, CA auction. Replicas of the coveted prizes have been on display in the newspaper's executive offices for years so no one remembers ever seeing the real medals firsthand. Odd. So they could have been stolen years ago and no one was the wiser? Very strange.

* UPDATE: Pulitzer medals thought to be Newsday's recovered
** How do you prove they're real Pulitzers? Weigh them.
