You are certainly entitled to your own opinions about the BHIGR and the
business they are in (this list certainly covers the spectrum). But
everything that I have read and heard indicates that S-- was available
for scientific study UNTIL the US govt. confiscated the specimen.
Now odds are high that S-- will disappear from public access, where
originally she was destined for a museum (albeit private).  If you
have information to the contrary, I'm sure this list would love to
hear it.
