The program was a bit muddled. Later on, it was made a bit clearer that
flowering plants appeared in the Cretaceous.

Some astronomers belittle Carl. I think they're a bit jealous. Last night,
crew from The Discovery Channel showed up at our planetarium and taped

resemble the background information we gave?
