So within a few hours, days, or weeks ALL DINOSAURS (yeah, yeah, and
lotsa other things) were dead? ALL of them?

And thanks to George and Dr. Holtz for answering my question about
_Suchomimus_ digits. That's why I asked; the reproduction of the
illustration in the newspaper was tiny (4 inches long and about 1.5
inches tall), and it's printed on newsprint. Certainly not the best way
to view such a detailed drawing. Thanks for the clarification guys!
