Has anyone here ever seen "The Thing," outside of Tucson, AZ, heading east towards New Mexico?

I haven't. I've been to Tucson only once and I didn't go east.

"The Thing" is probably the most disgusting example of the exploitation of Indian remains that I know of and have personally witnessed.

I suppose that nothing can be done about this tragic situation as the remains are classified as private property as are many other human artifacts of Southwest origin to include a few white cowboy/gunslinger mummies (and some Mexican outlaw's severed head in a huge jar) that are also on display here and there.
