Tom Sloan Cartoon: Hidden Treasures

Written by Tom Sloan

Hidden treasure: It’s important to have the proper perspective. Tom Sloan on some famous, smart and lucky finds. — Every so often there is something in the news about a great discovery. I don’t mean anything like discovering fire or America, but finding an unknown treasure. Mr. Carter was digging in the sand and found King Tut. Someone found a signed copy of Beethoven’s 9th in the attic. Someone else found a copy of the Declaration of Independence in an old shoe box.

What about the lucky guy who found an original Apple I with Steve Wozniak’s autograph and documentation signed by Steve Jobs at a garage sale for $15? Sometimes it’s about being very good about your subject and other times it’s just pure luck. I’d rather be lucky than good.

For, I’m Tom Sloan.
