 off of government land and selling them pretty concrete, and that much of
 the evidence for these transactions was recorded not only in the BHI's own
 records, but in corresponadances between Peter Larson and members of the
 paleontological community.  If someone could post these, I would be very
 appreciative.

Where are you planning to go with this?  I can see that information as useful
only in the context of the small percentage of charges for which the
government proved its case sufficieint to obtain a conviction.  I thought
people were innocent until proven guilty.
