Two things that have bothered me during the past week's
coverage are the concentration on the human aspect of
the story and the anthropomorphizing of Sue the _T.

retelling of the find, and it just keeps getting better
and better. The program's title of 20/20 also
describes the genius of hindsight in recalling events.
