BUT ... I'm not a life-long Cubs fan because they`re the winningest or anything ... they`re the hometown team. They`re my Cubs. The Cubs are just something special. It`d be like rooting against your kid`s high school team because another school has a better record. :) I`ll be a Cubs fan `til I die, WS win or not.

carmium "Technically, Patch, everything you see, you are looking at it's reflection." ------- I`m not sure I get what you mean. Sure, you are seeing reflected light, but that`s not a reflection of the item itself. An item`s reflection is when the light bounces off the item and hits a reflective surface before finally hitting your eye.
Anyway, with the Hope Diamond, they store it way down in a lower room, then use a series of mirrors to reflect the image up to the viewing window where you can see it. Given it`s value, you can`t blame them.
