Raiders of the Lost Codex: Scholars Piece Together Ancient Bible
Parts of the 1,600-year-old Codex Sinaiticus -- which includes the

Leipzig, London and St. Petersburg. Now researchers want to digitize
the fragments and publish the whole volume on the Internet. But does
the priceless manuscript really belong to St. Catherine's Monastery in
Egypt?

06:10 AM CDT on Friday, April 27, 2007 I made a momentous decision the
other day. I have ceased to clip.
This has nothing to do with lawns or nose hairs or whatever else you
might be thinking. This is about journalism. And it feels like closing
a door on the past.
As of a few days ago, I have given up the little task of clipping my
columns from the newspaper and filing them away. I suppose that amounts
to a last-gasp admission that this business has changed forever.
