I gotta hand it to those editors at Biblical Archaeology Review. Their bar code on the cover of their November/December 2006 issue (see picture above) was perfectly placed for a cover-up of mythic proportions!

But what was covered up? The uncensored version appeared on page 3 in a small, discrete inset sans bar code.

Editor Hershel Shanks is to be commended for demonstrating tact and discretion for, perhaps, the first time in his long and distinguished career!
