Tell him to keep watching! I actully bumped into him at the one in , believe
it or not, Fresno, CA. I then made a total idiot of myself. Could not form a
single coherent sentence. I went to his lecture a few days later to
appoligize and get him to sign his book and ended up with a 5' by 4'
Deinonychus drawing signed by him as well. Very nice man who gave a great talk.
