This is EXACTLY why elephant poaching continues!

There could not be a more corrupt or disgusting answer than this by the Kenyan government, who sits in the middle of the elephant poaching/enforcement crisis and is a signator to CITES! The only words I can think are pretty bad, so I will hold my tongue, as this is a public forum! I have always wanted to travel to Kenya, one of the cradles of human evolution, I even have a special 25th anniversary flag from their country, but will not until this changes profoundly. For their $350 fine, they will loose thousands, and more likely tens-of-tousands of my dollars in business in the future by me not traveling there now, let alone other disgusted travelers that hear about this. Click the link below to read the article.

If you have an interest in detecting fake art and antiques, go to Black Light World!

I am not one to promote other companies and people very often. However, I have found a company with total integrity, who only sell the real and proper black lights for working with fakes and counterfeits. Their prices are fair, they have excellent knowledge and their products are not flimsy cheap pieces, they are good quality. Please feel free to visit their site, and even let them know you found out about them here at my blog. The owner is a genuine and good person to boot: http://www.blacklightworld.com/Contact.htm.
