    For God's sake, get a grip!
        Stereotyping never ceases to amaze me. Leave it to someone to 
take a purely satirical comment that was little more than 2 WORDS 
long and blow it up to some big issue with all sorts of 
assumptions/stereotypes that have been foisted upon those who have 
committed the henious crime of not worshipping JP or the ground 
Speilberg walks on. Just because I didn't appreciate the scientific 
falsehoods of the movie, didn't think it had much in the way of a 
story, and hate the word "raptor" with a passion doesn't mean I'm 
going to freak out because there's a dinosaur cereal! Quite to the 
contrary, I'm probably going to be racing kids to the checkout line 
buying it (the same way I buy Count Chocula 'cause I'm a gothic 
freak=)... And I'm sure the same goes for more than a few of us 
pittiful, misguided, closed-minded cynics as well. So, geez yourself.
