Re: Traveling Sue exhibit in Boston

The original "arrangement" made at the time of the Sotheby's auction was that
THREE replicas of Sue would be made:
Two would travel under the aegis of MacDonalds and the third would be mounted
permanently at EPCOT in Florida.
Originally, of the two MacDonalds replicas, one was to travel in the US and the
other worldwide. Apparently that plan has altered somewhat, or it may follow the
release/distribution pattern of the Disney Dinosaur movie.
