Sorry, but this is NOT so.

An excavated fossil skeleton is a delicate thing, even one
as large as Sue.  Unless stored in a proper enviornment, it
will quickly deteriorate.  There is no evidence that the FBI
knows (or cares) how to store a valuable fossil of this sort.
Quite the contrary, there are reports of improper storage
conditions.  It might well be that the skeleton is *already*
seriously damaged, and of little further scientific value.

For this, of for no other reason, Sue needs to be transfered
to the posession of a qualified custodian appointed by the court.
