Here here, Dave.

The IAA has been acting VERY strangely of late. Almost schizophrenically 
in the announcements it makes (the YI, the JO, and the pomegranate), and 
in the projects it chooses to back (a search for the Ark of the Covenant 
by supporters of the late wacko Ron Wyatt).

VERY strange, indeed.
