   Sue is the property of the owner of the land it was found on, Maurice
Williams.  As of November 1995 he had indicated that the ONLY way it was
going to go anywhere was for somebody to buy it.  End of story.  All the
petitions in the world won't change that.  The only option is for everybody
to get together and buy the thing.

   For the full story of Sue, see my Journal of Dinosaur Paleontology at

   PS:  if anybody has the text to the following article, I'd love to have it.
