Dr.Bob publishes his stuff in ' The Hunteria' at the University of Colorado
Is this the TDH you're referring to ?
I met him at a lecture about 5 years ago ,at UNCW in Wilmington , N.C. His
campus escort was from Raleigh , and happened to be wearing one of my dino
t-shirts. He asked where he could get one .To make a long story short , I
got primo seats at the lecture ,and Bob got a shirt and some prints . The
guy's arrogant , eccentric and somewhat wide of the mark at times , but
he's entertaining in the context of a lecture and not a bad artist .He
absolutely should stay in the field and off of the T.V .
