If, like me, you have been watching the news voraciously, you might be wondering, "Why the hell aren't they talking about the antiquities? How bad is the damage to museums, and archaeological sites? What about all the foreigners who were there doing research?" And you might be quite angry that none of this information is showing up on CNN or Foxnews. Fortunately, there's plenty of accounts coming in online- unfortunately, they're contradictory and full of rumor.

This looks like a good place to keep up on the more solid accounts:

The information about Saqqara is confusing; Some sources say the tomb of Maia (Tuthankamun's wetnurse) has been completely destroyed; Hawass is saying nothing happened there. I'm hoping he's right.
