And, heck, I even had things to say. I got a copy of last week's New York Observer and it came with a huge, multi-page insert from some antiquities dealership about how great an investment antiquities are. There was a glorious, bullet-pointed list of the need for "scientific authentication" where they slyly slid in that an auction house or dealer will take no responsibility for an object that they sell you, implying that they were talking about "authenticity" but also (of course) lumping in illegality.
It was going to be great, I was going to scan it and show you folks...but apparently I tossed it in the recycle bin so no dice. Sleep soundly knowing that it will be compost in someone's garden.

Anyhow, I would still really like to hear from anyone doing anything interesting via email. Coming out of the dark tunnel that was the PhD I feel like I have let the "developing contacts" thing slide. Lets be academic friends!
