Thailand fossils

        There is a short article in this weeks's (1 May, 1995) Newsweek
(page 8) about dinosaur fossils in Thailand.  Apparently, "residents of
impoverished northeastern Thailand" have been robbing dino excavations for
fossils for the last two years.  They then sell the fossils to "artisans"
who carve little Buddas out of them, and sell them for up to $400.
