The Case of the Ten Dollar Art Mystery

There's a mystery going around. Host John Lemley received an envelope earlier this year containing three puzzling things: a cryptic letter with a clue on it, a slip of paper with a quotation of some sort, and a ten-dollar bill. As the months wore on, other people began receiving similar letters, including WABE's Kate Sweeney, who decided it was time a few of the recipients got together to hash out this mystery.

UPDATE: This mystery was solved when the perpetrator stepped forward in 2012. To hear WABE's story on that, click here.
