I've noticed that there are people who adore him and people who despise him. *shrugs*

Dr. Hawass continues to update what's lost and what's not at his blog: http://www.drhawass.com/blog/update-cur ... ntiquities

But he's coming under attack for his support of the Mubarak regime: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/02/ ... 2199.shtml I worried when he was appointed by Mubarak to his current position that he might be, or be perceived to be, co-opted. A precarious position to be in.
