Jason, the rock, the reel & the Maury statue!

Followers of this and related lists will recognize that we had a
similar problem regarding that alleged Bible in the hand of that
Maury statue in Richmond (to be distinguished from Dr. Bert's Maury
statue that is supposed to be at the Naval Academy).
You remember? That one fellow in particular, or was it two (Ira
Mikell and Rudy Schellekens) who kept looking at those fuzzy
pictures of that Maury statue and saying they could just see
the "book" in the hand of it.
Hopefully, they now know better. It, as I warned them, was not a
book or a Bible.
But they could just see it; just as Jason claims to be able to see
that Dr. Bert's rock formed around that reel within the last hundred
years or so.
Has anyone asked Dr. Bert, for the record, what his intentions are
regarding that story? It is still on his website.
