Uplifting News drhawass.com - Zahi Hawass
Dr. Hawass tells how several museums around Egypt have reopened. It is rather touching to hear of local Egyptians visiting the museums to see for themselves that everything is OK. (Well, almost everything.) Later in the update, ZH gets a leetle teeny bit defensive as he tries to explain why he can't hire everybody in Egypt who has a degree in archaeology--some of whom have been picketing outside his office. (What? The market for archaeologists is not good? OMG! Who knew?) Anyway, one hopes that the situation in the museums and digs around Egypt is settling down and getting back to normal, or perhaps even better than normal.
