    re: ming

    You bring up a good point. Unfortunately it’s not the first time antiquities were destroyed by Egypt. No one knows how many, but it’s estimated that millions of mummies were burned up in the nation’s railroads in the 1800s. They didn’t just embalm kings, but the common people as well. No local coal and oil wasn’t discovered until the 1900s in Egypt, so their history got burned up. They probably figured it was ok because it was the common person mummies rather than the kings displayed in museums, but what could we have learned? Nutrition from bones, what diseases they had, how much DNA has declined since then, etc.

    Hmm, my post vanished! I thought i’d double-posted and deleted one… but great cartooning as always, Jen!. My understanding – and I’m British, so help me out here – is that Pierre was an illegal immigrant until the moment he entered a marriage of convenience with Donna. Is there a homage to Gerard Depiardieu going on here – the movie “Green Card”? Which I suppose makes Donna into Andie McDowell – a woman who still looks pretty good at fifty. Which is my second observation: Donna looks a good twenty years older here through sleep deprivation! (Thinks: are Pierre and Donna due an investigation form the Immigration Service?) Second observation: when the Islamic armies first swept out of Arabia into Egypt, they viewed the pyramids as a nice handy source of building material, and promptly stripped the Great Pyramid of its limestone facing so as to build a mosque in Cairo. Roman observers had noticed the outer face of the Great Pyramid was full of ornate carving and heiroglyphs – now most of this has been reshaped into the great mosque of Cairo, we’ll never know what it said. Now this isn’t pointing the finger at Islam – any structure perceived as outlasting its original purpose is inevitably recycled regardless of the religion and ethnicity of the people doing the recycling. Hadrian’s Wall, for instance, was seen as a handy source of pre-quarried stone by the British, the Ango-Saxons, the English and the Scots, and half its length is levelled to the ground…
