Dinosaur Debate on C-Span

C-Span is running the debate between Jack Horner and Newt Gingrich
"T.-Rex Dinosaur: Scavenger or Predator?"  This was held at the
Museum of the Rockies on 9/3/98.  It is an hour in length and will
be shown at a couple of times this weekend.  I caught part of the
9-10 p.m. showing, but it will also be shown from 11:55 p.m. to
12:55 a.m. tonight and then on Sunday from 2:12 p.m. to 3:12 p.m.

Newt comes off as an informed amateur, with ideas but no scientific
background, not understanding having to be able to falsify a theory.  
Horner could have nailed him on many points, but it was a friendly
debate and not a paleontology death match.
