Error in politics occurs when a politician makes a coherent, defined, and
testable pronouncement. (Such pronouncements, when made by a politician,
are inevitably unsupported by facts and thus demonstrably false.)
Needless to say, this type of statement occurs with such infrequency as
to be virtually negligible, but the category _does_ exist.
ObDinosaur: Any news on Bakker's 'Epanterias', specifically whether it is
indeed a separate genus or just a large specimen of an existing allosaur,
after all? There were a couple of messages on the list a while back, but
(unless my notoriously leaky memory has flaked out on me again) no
resolution was posted.
