Political tracts, and a dino-related question

Actually, it's the libertarians who seem to get the most press on the net...

Hurmm. Slight exaggeration.  I haven't seen hide nor hair of the Army of
Northern Viginia lately, nor have I seen the U.S. Army burning Richmond
in recent memory.

I would beg to differ.  As an atheist and evolutionist, I find myself much
more tolerated among democrats than republicans.

Sure, after you get your jabs in, hmm?

I would hope so.

And now, onto a dinosaur related topic:

Did my interview on ABC get broadcast on ANY market?  It was not shown in
the Washington, D.C. area (where my family, my dept. chair, my deans, and
the university trusetees live!), but I have heard that it was on in Boston.
Please email me directly if you saw it: no need to clutter the net up any
more than it already is.  (I know, I should talk....)
