Boy George returned stolen Cypriot icon

George Alan O'Dowd - Boy George - has quickly and gracefully returned a Greek Cypriot Orthodox Christian icon, stolen from the Church of Agios Charalambous in Neochorio-Kythreas in northern Cyprus. (He returned it to the Orthodox Church in southern Cyprus.)

I should have mentioned this more than a week ago, but two things prevented me: first, Boy George returned the icon quickly and gracefully; and second, my Greek Cypriot friends and I have been laughing ever since about how the Orthodox priests found out he had any icon to return...
