Many thanks, Mickey, for taking the time to report all this.

However, this passage --

-- reminds me that I remember someone (sorry can't remember who)
reporting from the recent Mexico meeting, and dropping a tantalising
one-liner to the effect that, based on new observations of Sue,
"Everything you think you know about T. Rex is wrong."  I've been
waiting as patiently as I can ever since, but now I'm bursting to know
:-)  Can anyone give any details on the new "Sue" discoveries?
