Re: SUE - the legal morass

Thanks for the clarification(?) about the legal problems
concerning Sue.  Has the classic combination of greed and
stupidity once more clogged the wheels of progress?  Despite 
the possibility of deterioration of the fossil itself, I feel that
over time, the idiots will be made to look like idiots, and that
eventually the fossil will be on display somewhere for people
to appreciate.  

In the meantime, it is useful to spread the word about what is
going on - from whatever side you espouse.  The worst aspect
of these issues is that not only are the bones hidden away, but 
the arguments are, as well.  It seems that not much has been
published on this issue since 1992.  Let's keep Sue alive in the
minds of people who might have something to contribute.

I might note that in this month's National Geographic there is
a note about how to tell the sex of  a T.Rex using Sue as archtype.
Keep Sue before the public, and she just may emerge from her
boiler room  in our lifetime.
