Life Imitates Victorian Art (and Victorian Life)

On the tube yesterday, the glaring headline of one of the tabloids screamed "FAGIN'S RETURN!" The reference to Oliver Twist certainly grabbed my attention. Sadly, it wasn't a fictional sequel to the classic novel, but the true tale told within the pages was straight out of Dickens' London. Apparently Romanian children are being kidnapped (and sometimes purchased), brought to London, and forced to become pickpocketing thieves by human traffickers. I have noticed so many reports of human trafficking of late. Visit this site to help do something about it. --Kim
