That's how the archaeological blogosphere is painting the "opposition" of the "coineys" to the proposed MOU with Egypt. But only those with tunnel vision would think that those who represent 91% of the public comments are "isolated" or that qualms about the MOU were only raised by "coineys." What of the AAMD's and former CPAC member Kate Fitz Gibbon's critical public comments?
It is true far more proponents than opponents appeared at the CPAC meeeting. But proponents were largely academics who most likely are being reimbursed in some fashion for their travel to Washington, D.C. Most "coineys" simply don't have the time or the funding to attend.
CPO hopes to place its own summary of the MOU on this blog in the near future, but as is the case with other "coineys" sometimes other work must take precedence.
