Zahi Hawass--in or out?
While getting caught up on my Egyptian antiquity news
this morning, I stumbled upon some rather confusing reports about Zahi Hawass
, the former-then-retired-then-recently-reinstated Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities. Apparently he's back...
First, he was out
Then on April 12th, he was back and announcing this good news
Today's news, of course, is that he's been sentenced to a year in jail
(he says he's appealing)....so is he in or is he out??
My most interesting find in this internet search was Zahi Hawass' own website
...it includes a Fanclub
AND today's announcement that the Zahi Hawass Clothing Line
is launching. The good news? The profits from the sale will go to benefit the 57357 Children's Cancer Hospital in Cairo
