Dinosaurs *downplayed* by the media???? What alternate universe is this
e-mail coming from? (I'm glad I don't live there. :)

One out of the top 100 scientists being a paleontologist sounds about

paleontology *does* get more than its fair share of media attention,
creating the perception that it is a larger field than it is.
