Hey, I Was Quoted in the New York Times

In an article on Zahi Hawass.  Sure, it's a one-line quote in a much longer article, from an interview given several weeks ago, and doesn't say anything I haven't said before here. But they spelled my name right and (for now at least) have a lot more readers than I do.

By the way what sort of hat do you wear?

I rarely wear one, and just a baseball cap if the sun is hot.

Nor do I carry a bullwhip. Oh, that's that other archaeologist with the hat.
