From the Washington Post Online:
Steve Wynn to Keep Picasso He Damaged
Wednesday, October 18, 2006; C07
LAS VEGAS, Oct. 17 -- Casino mogul Steve Wynn will keep and restore a Pablo Picasso painting that he accidentally damaged shortly after he had agreed to sell it for a record $139 million, an aide said Tuesday.
Wynn was showing the painting, called "Le Reve" ("The Dream"), to guests in his office this month at Wynn Las Vegas when he struck the painting with his right elbow, spokeswoman Denise Randazzo said.
Wynn, who often gestures with his hands when he speaks, has retinitis pigmentosa, an eye disease that affects peripheral vision. He was traveling Tuesday and unavailable for comment.
The 1932 painting was left with a silver dollar-sized hole torn in the canvas, according to an account by screenwriter Nora Ephron, who saw the mishap.
Wynn reacted with an expletive, and said that he was glad he was responsible instead of someone else, Ephron recounted in a blog published Monday. He also promised to repair the painting.
Wynn bought the work for $48.4 million in 1997. He had agreed to sell the painting to art collector Steven Cohen for $139 million, which would have been $4 million higher than the $135 million that cosmetics magnate Ronald Lauder paid in July for Gustav Klimt's 1907 portrait "Adele Bloch-Bauer I."

Amazing. Larry David has a reported $200-$650 Million in the bank from that little-known show, Steinfeld, yet, feels a need to continue selling us more worthless products (the book- notice the large "Buy the book now" buttons). He should be focusing more on making better episodes of CYE. If there are any?!
EDIT: apparently, some are reporting a season 6!

Well it's fall and Photokina has come and gone.. and just like last year we are left with a Canon Double Rebate program (no triple rebates like last year).
I'm sure Canon will have this information soon on thier web site, I guess the ad is already in the Nov. magazine issues. Note the rebate amount on the Canon 5D....
60/2.8 USM Macro $10/$20
17-40 f/4L USM $45/$90
24-105 f/4L IS USM $50/$100
28-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS USM $20/$40
70-200 f/4L USM $35/$70
100-400 f/4.5-5.6L USM $40/$80
16-35 f/2.8L USM $50/$100
24-70 f/2.8L USM $50/$100
70-200 f/2.8L USM $45/$90
70-200 f/2.8L IS USM $50/$100

580 Flash $15/$30
MR-14 Flash $15/$30
MT-24 Flash $30/$60

NOTE: If your wondering how double rebates work... You buy one product and you get the rebate on it. You buy two qualifying products and you get double that rebate amount on each item you buy. Ex: You buy a Canon 5D and 24-105mm f/4 Lens, you get $600 off the camera body, and $100 the lens for a total savings of $700.
