Here is a humane and balanced portrait of Eric Prokopi from his local paper. In contrast, most coverage, which has relied on Government, paleontological and Mongolian sources, has vilified him.
Mr. Prokopi's guilty plea will also end his civil effort to recover the Bataar display piece he spent a year preparing. Left unresolved are serious questions concerning whether American law should subject American citizens to criminal and civil liability based on obscure and unclear foreign laws that are not even consistently applied at home.
