Knowing that this would be a cutting edge news event, I taped the Rosie
O?Donnell show.  The precocious paleontologist did not know what kind of
dinosaur it was which now bears his name.

His (memorized) theory was that a meteor hit the earth, sending up a big cloud
of dust and dirt in the sky which blocked out the sun, so the planteaters died
and then the meateaters died because they didn?t have anything to eat.  A
subtheory was that dinosaurs didn?t really die out because we still have
crocodiles and turtles.  

The highlight of the program was when Barney came out and hugged Justin, then
they all sang.  (A mega-Maalox moment.)
