Those who want to collect important dinosaur articles and information
should definitely get this issue.  Chris Brochu obviously can't talk
too candidly about the findings as yet, but it appears that much of the 
speculation on Sue's gender and fate were just that.   Early descriptions
such as half of the face having been torn off and face biting by other
tyrannosaurs have not proven to be true.  The final battle of Sue 
defending her family?  She may just have died of old age or the
accumulation of injuries.  Abnormal bone growth on the right fibula 
is shown in the picture on p. 57.
