An unfortunate career choice – Mummy smuggler

How, exactly, does one decide that this is the course they are going to take in life?

Me, I became an editor and journalist because I had spend years laboring – unhappily – to be a playwright in NYC. I had some small success, but was miserable. I then became an advertising creative, which made being an unsuccessful NYC playwright look like a day at the beach. Woof.

But the guys mentioned in this story from the AP, a couple of Mummy Smugglers, must’ve had to dig really deep to decide on this career path, but… I know smuggling antiquities is an old profession, but I’m just assuming that selling ancient bodies, wrapped in linen, dessicated, and decorated with heiroglyphics has got to be a rough way to make a buck… Not to mention the bad karma that must come with it…
