JAMES OSSUARY update...En route to Toronto for display at a major conference, the ossuary cracked in transit. Now we're talking about a 2,000 year old limestone box--it wasn't designed by the Jerusalem Ossuary Company (yes, I made that up) to travel by plane to Canada. Can you imagine what the ossuary's maker would have thought of such a thing! I was amused by the articles assurance that the new cracks 'would not diminish its overall importance'. No, I didn't think so.
