Zawi Hawass is such a media whore

Curiously, Zawi Hawass is making a futile attempt to retrieve the famed bust of Nefertiti from Berlin.  As if the Egyptian Minister of Antiquities doesn’t have enough to worry about just protecting the antiquities that Egypt already has.  But then, fighting looters in Egypt just doesn’t get the kind of press that going on an anti-colonialist crusade does.  And maybe he’s hoping this will draw attention away from his other problems.
