Sue sale details!!

   I was finally able to get some more details about the sale.  Not much,
unfortunately, as the media office is shut down until Monday.  I'm sure the
papers will have more info.

   According to the bid department:

   $7.6 million was the top bid.  With the buyer's premium, the total
purchase price is $8.3 million.

   "Sue" was purchased by Richard Grey, president of the Art Dealers
Association, acting as agent for the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.

   Backers for the purchase include McDonalds and Disney.
