It appears Zahi Hawass has been ousted as head of antiquities in Egypt (recall he had resigned and then came back). Check out the story here (you have to love the picture).

I’d guess that Egyptology might be better off without Zahi (he is something of a huckster, but he drew positive attention to Egyptology). However, since the country is being taken over by Islamo-fascists (disguised as a “democracy movement” – a time-honored tactic), I’m betting we’ll miss the days of rolling our eyes at Zahi’s antics on TV.
